Concerning Descriptive Standards: A Partnership between Public Archives and Private Collections in Geneva, Switzerland
Roth-Lochner, Barbara; Grange, Didier
Journal of Archival Organization, v3 n2-3 p125-138 2005
This paper presents the results of a partnership begun in 2002 in the field of archival description between the Geneva City Archives (AVG) and the Manuscripts Department of the Public and University Library of Geneva (BPU). This cooperation has allowed the creation of two computer applications, which share technical and conceptual foundations. Both "IDEA" (at the AVG) and "Odyssee" (at the BPU) are built with respect to international descriptive standards, notably "ISAD(G)", as well as the combination of XML and EAD. (Contains 3 figures and 15 notes.)
