New publication on APE: “Archival Standardisation Work in Europe and its influence on access and exchange of metadata”

by Ana María López Cuadrado (Head of the Coordination and Normalisation Department at the National Archives of Spain and APE board member)

TRIA, the journal of Andalusian Archives, is an open-access publication for archivists and information professionals. Its most recent issue hosts an article about Archives Portal Europe by one of its long-time collaborator, Ana María López Cuadrado, former Country Manager representative for Spain, and currently board member of APE.

The article describes the structure and activities of APE, as well as its history, its objectives, and the wider context in which the project was born: a point of intersection between Digital Humanities, History research, and national/European-level directives on archives in the digital world.

The full article (in Spanish) is available here; the abstract is also available in English.
