This paper discusses limitations of the current archival description standard Encoded Archival Description (EAD) and proposes two solutions to overcome these limitations. One solution is to modify the current EAD schema based on the entity–relationship model defined in the Australian Series System. The other solution is to replace EAD with another standard, the Open Archives Initiative Object Reuse and Exchange (OAI-ORE), which can be used to produce more flexible archival descriptions in linked data format.
