Tufts Accessioning Program for Electronic Records

The Digital Collections and Archives is pleased to announce the completion of its TAPER Project (Tufts Accessioning Program for Electronic Records). During the project the DCA designed, developed, and implemented machine-readable submission agreements and records context records. The DCA fully implemented the machine-readable submission agreements to document accessions and integrated the production of records context records encoded in EAC-CPF into its normal descriptive practices. By the end of the grant project the DCA encoded 51 records context records about Tufts departments and offices in EAC.

The project deliverables, including our local instructions for implementing EAC, are available to use, adapt, and modify.

TAPER was funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission as an electronic records Program Expansion Project grant.
