Unlike Library of Congress name authority records, which contain little information about the person or body other than the authorized and variant forms of names, the ISAAR records "describe fully the attributes of the creator needed to appreciate the context of creation of a body of archival documents," allowing contextual information about the person or body to be maintained separately from the archival entity described in the Encoded Archival Description (EAD) itself.
Since 1997, ISAAR has been contributing to exchange and update the data and information on various issues related to infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance biennially.
