AtoM@UCT

3 Apr 2017 - 11:30

Introducing AtoM@UCT, the recently launched on-line gateway to the primary source collections held by UCT Libraries. AtoM stands for “AccesstoMemory”, an open source, web-based, standards compliant (ISAD-G, DACS, RAD, EAD/EAC, DC etc.) archival management system that is rapidly becoming the gold standard in open source archival description software. AtoM@UCT is a work in progress, but already contains some 1200 archival descriptions. AtoM@UCT will eventually provide on-line access to descriptions of all our special collections, as well as to digital objects from the collections, allowing researchers remote access to our primary source materials.
