Tufts Accessioning Program for Electronic Records
Posted on November 4, 2011 by Deborah Kaplan | Categories: news | |  Tagged:  , |

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.

The Digital Collections and Archives is wrapping up a three-year National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) electronic records Program Expansion Project grant (RE10005-08) to support the Tufts Accessioning Program for Electronic Records (TAPER). A key component of the TAPER Project was the development of a  systematized process for accessioning electronic records. Out of this project came the Submission Agreement Builder Tool (SABT) which we are actively using to create Transfer Agreement Forms, not just for our electronic records accessions, but for all our accessions.

Learn more about the TAPER project.

Take a look at the latest SABT code.

And coming soon! A video presentation of the Transfer Agreement Form in action!
