Description: Using descriptive and technical standards for your finding aids will makes access to your collection better now, and into the future! Standards-compliant description can more easily migrate between systems and be shared in an increasingly linked open data environment. This workshop will assume familiarity with concepts of archival arrangement and description. Participants will learn:
  • Key requirements for creating finding aids following Describing Archives: A Content Standard, Second Edition (DACS)
  • Importance of standards-based description in modern discovery environments, including leveraging Encoded Archival Description (EAD)
  • Project management strategies for clean-up projects to bring legacy finding aids up to standards

Instructors: Building on her background as a cataloger, Morag Boyd is the Acquisitions and Discovery Strategist at The Ohio State University Libraries. Morag leads the acquisitions, electronic resources, and collection description functions. Cate Putirskis is the manager of the Special Collections Processing Program at Ohio State University Libraries, leading a team responsible for the arrangement, description, and collection maintenance of the archival holdings at OSUL.
