Update on schema conversion Summer 2016

Fellow TARO folks,

We are wrapping up schema conversion for repositories who already create schema-compliant EAD using ArchivesSpace and Archon (known as “Group A”).
Directions for those repositories are online at TARO Today blog (using Archon, and using ArchivesSpace).

We have begun working individually with the hand encoders known as “Group B,” as listed below.
San Jacinto Museum of History was converted last week and the process went smoothly.
Updated instructions for working with TARO-friendly EAD are available here.

Below is the schedule for Group B, with Group C following in early 2017.
Basic info on how the conversion process works and which group each repository is in

Thanks, everyone!
Amanda Focke, TARO Steering Committee co-chair
