New Archeion service now live!

02 Dec 2011 4:34 PM | Danielle Robichaud

On behalf of the members of the Archeion Standing Committee and members of the Archives Association of Ontario, I am very pleased to announce that the new Archeion database of Ontario archival descriptions is now available at www.archeion.ca.

The new Archeion is based on ICA-AtoM open source software which offers a number of enhancements that were not available in our previous system.  These include:

*multi-level archival descriptions!

*linking digital objects held in institutional digital repositories to descriptions

* Institutional descriptions based on ICA-ISDIAH, the International Standard for Describing Institutions with Archival Holdings, which will allow AAO institutional members contributing to Archeion to keep up-to-date contact and descriptive information about their institution;

And many more! Please see the attached complete press release for full details and for acknowledgments of all the help we've had in getting the new service up and running.

Please contact Archeion Coordinator Amanda Hill for information on how to access and use the new system: archeion@aao-archivists.ca.
