AtoM, or Access to Memory, is a web-platform archival description software. Based on International Council on Archives (ICA), AtoM includes standards-based archival description and access in a multilingual, multi-repository environment.
All AtoM code is released under a GNU Affero General Public License (A-GPL 3.0) and the main purpose of the AtoM Project is to provide a free and open-source software that:
- enables institutions to make their archival holdings available online, especially those who could not otherwise afford to do so,
- manages archival descriptions in accord with ICA standards
- provides multi-lingual interfaces and content translation features
- supports multiple collection types
- is fully web-based, user-friendly and follows accessibility best practices
- is flexible and customizable
- is useful to both small and large institutions alike, and
- supports single or multi-repository implementations
Currently AtoM supports the following import/export formats: EAD, EAC-CPF, CSV and SKOS.
SCANBIT provides AtoM services to the archives and memory institutions, including consultancy in archiving, installation of the open source software, configuration, deployment, development of new funcionality, training, hosting and more.
