Base Component

Everything you need to get started!

The base component of the Eloquent Archives™ application gives you everything you need to describe all types of resources and make them available on the Internet. The multi-level structure required for DACS, ISAD(G), and RAD is easy to create and maintain. Clients use a mobile device or their favorite browser to render all types of digital content – audio, photos, video, flip books, large maps & drawings, e-books, PDFs, websites, and more. Hard copy can be requested from the archivist with database entry or an automatically populated e-mail.

Quickly go public with a few of your most interesting collections and, as time permits, process the backlog. Add current events – they attract the public interest and make archives a dynamic resource. Automatically export selected material to a Historical Timeline. It offers a valuable portal into the most relevant historical material.

Optional Modules

Easy to activate when you are ready!

The Member Module gives researchers the ability to maintain their own demographics, leave comments about items (crowd sourcing), tag images with names of people and places, and other special privileges. The Historical Timeline Module gives you another valuable and attractive public portal. It is automatically published and posted to the Internet with links back into the database.

Plus all standard ACM modules:
Accession/De-accession - Space Management - Tracking & Retrieval - Research Management - Member Module - HTML Publishing - EAD Export - Google Maps Mash-up - Google Analytics
