Directions from the Hilton Hotel to Loyola University
Have you taken the EAD workshop(s) and would love to get together with others to spend time “playing” with the Encoded Archival Description tool – just for the sake of building better metadata? At the EAD Hackathon, you’ll learn how to submit your style sheet to GitHub (https://github.com
) for the benefit of all. Plus, you’ll get a chance to play with the new beta version of EAD. If you're new to EAD, please join us. At the Hackathon you’ll:
Who should attend?
- Become familiar with tools such as GitHub and the new EAD help pages that are now on GitHub;
- Experiment with the new EAD and come up with ideas to share with the EAD Task Force;
- Experiment with EAC-CPF; and
- Have a chance to try EAD, even if you’ve had little or no EAD experience.
Archivists, digital curators, IT professionals, legal professionals, librarians, museum professionals, and records managers who want to give this atypical format a try. Hackathons provide a forum for individuals and teams to come together to make innovation happen. What should you already know?
No specific knowledge is required to participate, but an interest in discussion and experimentation is a must! The agenda will be determined by the participants, not set in advance by the facilitators. Attendance is limited to 40. Give feedback on this session
