Final Release of the Tag Library of the EAC-CPF Schema

The Technical Subcommittee on Encoded Archival Context is pleased to announce the publication of the final release of the Tag Library of the EAC-CPF 2010 schema – the EAC-CPF Tag Library 2014.

The previous release was published in 2010 and had the status of draft. Over 2011 – 2013 the Draft Tag Library was translated in French, Spanish, German, Italian and Greek. The process of translation was also an excellent opportunity to review and comment on the content of the Draft Tag Library, by pointing out inconsistencies with the schema and other editorial issues. On the basis of these comments and other queries and suggestions from the international community the TS-EAC has undertaken a thorough revision of the Draft Tag Library text.

Note that this revision concerns only the Tag Library. The EAC-CPF 2010 schema itself has not changed.

In parallel, a new model for the TEI encoding of the Tag Library was designed. The objective of this model is to facilitate the maintenance, update and publication of the Tag Library as living documentation for the EAC-CPF schema. The new model is also intended to facilitate the encoding of the various linguistic versions of the Tag Library. The current release of the EAC-CPF Tag Library 2014 is encoded following the new TEI encoding model.
