  • What is a finding aid?
    A document containing detailed information about a specific collection of papers or records
    Used by researchers to determine whether information within a collection is relevant to their research
    Content may differ depending on the type of material it is describing
    Usually compiled by an archivist during processing
  • What is EAD?
    EAD is a non-proprietary data structure standard for encoding finding aids for use in an online environment.
    XML [extensible-markup language]-compliant.
    Developed by the archival community; jointly administered and maintained by the Society of American Archivists and the Library of Congress.
    Version 1.0 was released in 1998

  • Background
  • Goals of the Project
    Improve user interface – speed and functionality
    Permanent links
    From MARBL to Emory-wide resources for archives and manuscript collections
    MARBL finding aids > EmoryFindingAids
    marbl.library.edu/findingaids > findingaids.library.emory.edu
  • Consistency in design, navigation, function and message is the key to this. Departments and school sites should reflect individual flavor and character within guidelines that users will recognize as "Emory.”

    Your site may be Emory's only chance to make a lasting impression on many visitors. It's important that all our sites look and feel like they belong to the same institution.
