Abstract

This paper presents a collaborative project set up by the Association of French Archivists and the Archives of France which aims to create standardised descriptions of records creators (or to share existing information) and to propose models which archival institutions can reuse to describe their own records' creators. The objective is to provide French departmental archives with an easy-to-use, interactive and participatory tool. ISAAR(CPF) is the reference content standard and EAC-CPF is the communication standard, since the project managers wanted to provide archival institutions with re-usable and real exchangeable authority records which could be imported into their own information systems.
