This section provides links to three technical sites that are important to the library and archival community in providing access to materials.
  • XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a markup language for documents that contain structured information, such as words, pictures, mathematical equations, and so forth.
  • MARC (MAchine Readable Cataloging) is a set of standards for the representation and communication of bibliographic and related information in a machine-readable form.
  • EAD (Encoded Archival Description) DTD (Document Type Definition) is a standard for encoding archival finding aids using SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language).
For cataloging guidelines and processing procedures for dance-related materials, see Cataloging. For additional assistance, the Library of Congress has a web site that describes the standards that are maintained by the Library and used in the information community.
