The speakers present an interim report on Social Networks and Archival Context (SNAC), a two-year project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) that began in May 2010. Project participants describe both the challenges and accomplishments involved in deriving EAC-CPF authority records from EAD-encoded finding aids, matching and combining them with library and museum authority records, and building a prototype public access and historical resource system. The public access system is demonstrated.
