AtoM stands for Access to Memory. It is a web-based, open source application for standards-based archival description and access in a multilingual and multi-repository environment. AtoM was originally built with support from the International Council on Archives, to encourage broader international standards adoption.
Your AtoM installation can be accessed from anywhere you have an internet connection. All core AtoM functions take place via a web browser, with minimal assumptions about end-user requirements for access. No more synching multiple installations on a per-machine basis – install AtoM once, and access it from anywhere.
Max are now expert in setting up, deploying, managing and maintaining multiple installations of AtoM both in terms of different clients and within an organisation.
For many of our DRYAD clients we also provide a WordPress web site which sits in front of the AtoM software. This WordPress wraparound is integrated with the AtoM back-end database.
WordPress is a tried and tested open source content management system, used in close to half a billion websites worldwide. Famous names who use WordPress include the New York Times, Microsoft, Sony and many others. WordPress is hugely popular amongst small to medium sized enterprises as well as large organisations with global reach and is the ideal platform for creating archival websites. WordPress’s flexibility and ease-of-use mean that the basic tasks associated with maintaining a website such as adding and deleting pages, editing content like text and images, adding new menu items and keeping the site up-to-date and secure can be taken on by individuals with little or no coding experience with minimal training.
Please visit the DRYAD Clients page to see how we have integrated WordPress and AtoM for London Southbank University. Other WordPress/ AtoM installations include ZSL, Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh and Catawba Indian Nation.
