Archives Online is designed by Andornot Consulting in conjunction with the City of Richmond Archives and Archefactual Systems Consulting. It provides databases for managing archival accessions and descriptions. A thesaurus facility for building subject and name access is also provided.
Archives Online complies with the Rules for Archival Description (RAD) and the International Standard for Archival Description (ISAD). A user manual and extensive online help provides detailed instructions for entering material. Descriptions of non-archival material are also easily managed.
Archives Online includes easy-to-use search screens and many detailed reports for generating finding lists, shelf lists, donor lists, hierarchies and photo inventories.
