On Wednesday 9 March, the Archives and Records Association (Ireland) and the Digital Repository of Ireland host a one-day workshop provinding an introduction to Encoded Archival Description (EAD).

The workshop will also include descriptions and a demonstration of how EAD can be shared through the Digital Repository of Ireland’s platform.
