Texas Archival Resources Online (TARO) Consortium to the 21st Century Project

A planning project to update technical standards and intellectual control for the Texas Archival Resources Online (TARO), which contains over 7,200 finding aids describing collections held by cultural heritage institutions in Texas.

The Texas Archival Resources Online (TARO) consortium based at The University of Texas at Austin, University of Texas Libraries, would like to apply for a Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Foundations Grant, for the purpose of collaborative planning, assessment and pilot activities. Our TARO Project seeks to enhance intellectual control and solidify our collaborative framework for complex reference. Specifically, our Project would create editorial plans for standardization of existing archival finding aids and updating of EAD best practices documentation, devise strategies for technological and programmatic sustainability, and produce a concrete plan for critical changes to our online reference resources.
