The Archives West Standing Group studies and envisions changes to the Archives West finding aid database. Areas of focus include: efficient management and support of new features; changes in descriptive standards (EAD3) and metadata structures; and evolving service needs. The group will also investigate alternative systems or partnerships, and works with Alliance Central Staff to refine and recommend upgrades, changes, and replacements.
Established 2019 July. The former EAD Database Standing Group worked on related matters.
