This is a two-year project, funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, to address a critical responsibility that archives have discovered in their work with electronic records: the persistent need to educate a variety of constituencies about the principles, products, and resources necessary to implement archival considerations in the application of information technology to governmental functions. Metadata and XML will be the two primary tools and resources to help archivists and their constituencies meet the electronic records challenge.
Project Partners include the: Minnesota Historical Society, Delaware Public Archives, Indiana University Archives, State of Kentucky, Ohio Historical Society, San Diego Supercomputer Center, and Smithsonian Institution Archives.
