INSTG041 EAD and Digitisation of Archives
This module explores the provision of finding aids and archival material in the online environment. It examines the background and development of EAD and EAC (Encoded Archival Context), their relationship to the principles of archival description, and their practical application to the descriptive work of archivists.
In addition, this module will consider some of the wider issues surrounding the presentation of digitised archival content, such as copyright and sustainability. Students will be expected to critically assess a range of current projects and to consider questions including, what determines what gets digitised, what should be the role of the commercial sector in such projects and what constitutes good practice in this area?
