Zdenka and Stanley B. Winters Czech and Slovak Poster Collection, 1920-1991

Encoded Archival Description (EAD)


To aid resource discovery, an itemized Encoded Archival Description (EAD) record for the Winters Collection has been created, accessible here. EADs use the Extensible Markup Language (XML) to encode archival finding aids for purposes of, among other things, enabling "extensive and interrelated descriptive information found in archival finding aids" and "support for element-specific indexing and retrieval" (from <EAD> Encoded Archival Description, Version 2002).

Once all the posters in the Winters Collection have been translated and the collection has been cataloged, the EAD file for the collection will be updated.

Like the VRA Core and OAI, EAD is a type of standard. For a list of other standards, see the Library of Congress's standards page .
