Focusing on record creators, EAC-CPF offers new opportunities in sharing description and providing searching and discovery to researchers, and more flexibility in the display and linking of information. The speakers present two distinct approaches to using EAC-CPF: one to document and map a complex organizational structure and the other to virtually connect the rich related resources at two geographically separate institutions. Discussion focuses on descriptive opportunities that EAC-CPF presents, along with implementation strategies, costs, and pitfalls.
