Technology Analysis Selection: ArchivesSpace

Technology: ArchivesSpace
Context: ArchivesSpace is an open-source software for "describing, managing, and providing access to archives, manuscripts, and digital objects."
Audience: Archivists

ArchivesSpace is an open-source archival management software that enables archivists to manage collections, provide digital access, and create finding aids without having to encode them. It is in the final stages of development, and will replace Archon and the Archivists' Toolkit, two earlier archival management softwares. I attended a workshop about ArchivesSpace earlier this semester, and would like the opportunity to assess its viability in more detail.
