The Berkeley Finding Aid Project (BFAP) had as its aim the development of an electronic encoding standard for archive, museum, and library electronic finding aids, which typically are narrative documents describing collections and their contents.
With the Commission on Preservation and Access (CPA), the Society of American Archivists (SAA), Council on Library Resources, and the Library of Congress' National Digital Library Program, rapidly moving to complete the standards process initiated in Berkeley, the Berkeley Finding Aid Project is generally considered to have achieved its primary goal of driving the development of a new standard for electronic finding aids, and, in doing so, to have defined the state of the art in archival electronic publishing.
