OCLC Research to Host EAC-CPF Webinar for the Pacific Rim on Wednesday, 4 November at 11:00 a.m. Sydney/Melbourne Time
To accommodate attendees from different time zones, OCLC Research, the RLG Partnership and the EAC Working Group are holding a second EAC-CPF webinar. We invite archivists, authorities librarians, system developers and linked-data geeks to discuss the draft EAC-CPF standard (Encoded Archival Context-Corporate Bodies, Persons and Families) on Wednesday, 4 November at 11:00 a.m. Sydney/Melbourne Time (Tuesday, 3 November at 4:00 p.m. US/Pacific).
EAC-CPF (EAC for short) is a communications structure (XML schema) for archival contextual information which would complement and be linked to EAD (Encoded Archival Description) descriptions of particular archival collections. EAC’s capabilities enable important steps toward an archival component of the Semantic Web. The final draft EAC schema is open for comment until 31 October 2009.
In this webinar, Katherine Wisser, chair of the international EAC Working Group, will introduce the EAC-CPF standard and then open the phone and chat lines for questions. Basil Dewhurst, Manager of Resource Discovery Services at the National Library of Australia and member of the EAC Working Group, will also be online to participate in the discussion.
