CNI Podcast: Archon - The Simple Archival Information System - An Interview with Chris Prom

This ten minute podcast features an interview with Chris Prom, Assistant University Archivist and Associate Professor of Library Administration at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It was recorded at the Coalition for Networked Information Fall 2008 Task Force Meeting. Prom is part of team that developed the Archon software, which was awarded the Mellon Awards for Technology Collaboration.

Archon is an open source application for archivists and manuscript curators. It automatically publishes archival descriptive information and digital archival objects in a user-friendly website. There is no need to encode a finding aid, input a catalog record, or program a stylesheet. Archon's scripts will automatically make everything in the system searchable and browsable on your repository's website.
