As part of the major revision of the Encoded Archival Description (EAD), the Society of American Archivists' (SAA) Technical Subcommittee on Encoded Archival Standards (TS-EAS), in collaboration with the Encoded Archival Standards (EAS) Section Steering Committee, will be hosting a webinar in March to introduce the main aspects of the revision and the process to getting to a new version. We invite everyone who works with archival description in whichever format and context to join us and to be part of the conversations to shape the new version of EAD.
As TS-EAS aims to more actively engage with the community in general and with various sections of the community in particular throughout the entire revision process, this webinar will be the first in a series of interactive events inviting the community to an open exchange about the standard, its current use and its future development. With this in mind, we would like to especially encourage the participation of:
Similar to previous TS-EAS webinars, there will be two sessions of 1.5 hours each to accommodate our international user community. Both sessions will have the same content and set-up, but likely a different group of participants (depending on their time zones), which should make for a broader coverage and a bigger variety of perspectives being brought into the conversation.
Join us and your colleagues at one—or both—of the following events:

The general part of both sessions will also be recorded and posted to SAA's YouTube channel.
You can also find the Encoded Archival Standards Primer on YouTube, in case you have never used EAD, need a refresher or are otherwise wondering what this is about.
