Picturae is gold sponsor of three-day international APEx conference in Budapest and will be present with an information stand. Picturae’s Pieter Woltjer will also give a presentation about Picturae and the future of collection management for archives.
The second International APEx Conference Collaboration and networking for a digital archival future – Sustainable perspectives through the Archives Portal Europe will take place in Budapest from 7-9 September 2015 at the Hungarian Parliament and the conference center of the Eötvös Loránd University, called “Gólyavár”. During the conference the outcomes and achievements of the Archives Portal Europa which have already been accomplished, will be discussed, but challenges, solutions and concepts for the future will also be examined. The conference focuses on specific topics which originate the conference’s structure into topic-related panels:
International cooperation and collaboration
Sustaining digital archival infrastructures
Assessment of use cases of digital service infrastructures and the re-use of data
The question of impact
Possibilities and perspectives of digitizing archival content for access and possible (re-)use
Which archival institution would not like to publish their finding aids on Archives Portal Europe and reach for the larger public? Unfortunately, this is not easy for everyone. Many institutions don’t have the tools or the know-how to export their finding aids to EAD and make them available through OAI-PMH. With Memorix Archives you can do all this effortlessly! In a user friendly, web based tool that offers all the functionality you need to manage your archival collection, without having too much or too little options. Moreover it’s completely based on ICA standards like ISAAR (CPF), ISAD(G), ISDIAH and exchange standards such as OAI-PMH.
Together with ten Dutch archival institutions, of different size and nature, Picturae has researched and developed a new archival management system: Memorix Archives. The new archive collection management system is designed to support all archive-related processes, such as acquisition, management of fonds and creators, finding aid creation, depot management, operations, et cetera. Memorix Archives also includes a fully functional website-presentation of finding aids and an option for online reservations of files. Interested in collection management? Join the session with Picturae’s Pieter Woltjer on the second conference day: September 8th on 09.45 AM!
Archives Portal Europa
The Archives Portal Europe has become the main platform where European archives present themselves, their holdings and their treasures. It is the single access point for users to start their cross-border research for archival material throughout Europe. After six years of development within two projects co-funded by the European Commission, the Archives Portal Europe network of excellence – APEx – will now hand over the reins to the Archives Portal Europe Foundation which will secure and nurture the further successful growth and expansion of the Archives Portal Europe.
