Mapping Encoded Archival Description to CIDOC CRM.
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we analyze the semantics of the archival description, expressed through the Encoded Archival Description. Through this analysis it is concluded that an EAD document is a hierarchy of documentation elements and attributes and that through this documentation the archive is semantically expressed through three di erent hierarchies (hierarchy of physical objects, hierarchy of information objects and hierarchy of linguistic objects). The semantic views of the archive as well as their interrelationships are mapped to the CIDOC CRM.
