  • Description

    Archon is a unified platform for archival description and access. It provides both a way to record descriptive information about collections and digital objects and a means to view, search, and browse that infomation in a fully-functional public web site.

    Archon’s public interface always shows the most current information because it is updated automatically when archival staff add or edit records using an ‘administrative interface.’ (MARC and EAD records are similarly updated when a staff member makes any changes.)

    Once information has been entered, staff members need do nothing more to make the information instantly accessible, searchable, and browsable.

    Archon has an extensive feature list, too dense to include here. To see what this application is capable of, visit the Archon website.
