EAD3 standard to codify archival data: some news and many confirmations


Abstract


In consideration of the increased possibilities to provide a richer and a more well-structured archival description and the experience matured in years, in Summer 2015 the Society of American Archivists has adopted the new version of Encoded Archival Description as a standard: EAD3. After retracing the decision process and the review related to the EAD 2002 version, the article examines the new version of the standard in its main original aspects. An appendix on the use of EAD3 in the inventory of Ex Ospedale psichiatrico Santa Maria della Pietà di Roma (1979-1999) archive, completes the essay.
