- The LEADERS project aims to enhance remote user access to archives by providing the means to present archival source materials within their context
- This is being achieved by linking encoded transcripts and digitised images of paper based archival materials (content) to encoded finding aids and authority records (context)
- LEADERS utilises three XML encoding systems as a basis for developing a generic toolset: Encoded Archival Description (EAD) for finding aids, Encoded Archival Context (EAC) for authority records and the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) for transcripts
- The toolset will offer archivists the means to provide their users with innovative ways to access and analyse archival material within its context
LEADERS is a research project based in the School of Library, Archive and Information Studies (SLAIS) at University College London (UCL). It is funded until March 2004 by the Arts and Humanities Research Board (AHRB).
