“Dynamic Duo: Enhancing Access through Dual Description: EAD and TEI”

Combining and integrating metadata sets with Encoded Archival Description (EAD) further widens the possibilities for archival description. Together, these standards provide richer context and better control over digital representations of archival artifacts down to the item level of archival records, papers, and manuscripts. This panel explores the potential of EAD to improve navigation throughout digital collections of cultural and heritage institutions and enhance access to their holdings.
