From AEON to AtoM

One giant step for SRO

This week we launch our new Archives management system, based on the Canadian software Accesstomemory (AtoM).  When you click on the ‘search our archives catalogue’ button on our home page, it’s one small click for you, but a giant step for SRO.We first developed a computer catalogue in 1986 using a Sun database, but it was for internal use only.  In 2004, we were able to take up the Microsoft based system developed for the State Records Office in New South Wales.

SRO catalogue enhancement discoveries

Where SRO’s old AEON online catalogue could only show item titles – which can be uninformative - our new online catalogue allows us to add content and scope notes to the catalogue record. Work is underway on some 1890s Mines Department files in Consignment 964 and catalogue records are now including names of people applying for positions with the Department, people applying for mining leases, Asiatics applying for miner’s rights, and other detail of value to researchers.

Comparing AEONs to AtoMs

For many years we’ve been receiving feedback from SRO users through our surveys and feedback forms about AEON – about how it works and what sort of functions and features it should have. We’ve been listening and, while not everything you have requested is possible, we have begun looking at a replacement collection management system which will accommodate many of the functions requested over the years.
