Describing Archives: A Content Standard, Second Edition (DACS) is Released

Describing Archives: A Content Standard, Second Edition (DACS) has been published. DACS facilitates consistent, appropriate, and self-explanatory description of archival materials and creators of archival materials. This new edition reflects the growing convergence among archival, museum, and library standards; aligns DACS with the descriptive standards developed and supported by the International Council on Archives; and provides guidance on the creation of archival authority records.
