1998 was a great year that saw the introduction of Viagra, the iMac, and Euro coins.

John Glenn returned to space via the Space Shuttle. There was a 66-day-long blackout in Auckland, New Zealand. The US government filed an antitrust case against Microsoft.

Smoking was banned in all California bars and restaurants. The first XML specification was released, and Google, Inc, was founded in Menlo Park, California, by two Stanford PhD candidates.

US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya were bombed. It was the year of the Lewinsky scandal. Professional wrestler Jesse Ventura was elected Governor of Minnesota.

And in 1998 Encoded Archival Description (EAD) was released to a world of eager archivists!

Please join us for a symposium to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of EAD!

The day will feature talks from European speakers who will describe the adoption of EAD in their own countries as well as plans for a European archives portal. We'll also hear from a group of innovative archivists who will present their forward-thinking (and sometimes provocative) views about what the next 10 years will bring.
