SESSION 109 - ICA Expert Group on Archival Description: Interim Report on the Development of a Conceptual Model

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The International Council on Archives (ICA) Expert Group on Archival Description is developing a conceptual model and ontology for archival description, to be completed in 2016. The model  and ontology reconcile and integrate the existing ICA descriptive standards and position the archival community to take full advantage of opportunities presented by emerging communication technologies. Members of EGAD provide a progress report on the model as this work nears the end of its third year.
