New items in 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.

Catalogue Updates - November 2014

 There’s always something new in SRO’s online catalogue. Called AEON and soon to become AtoM, we are continuously uploading digitised archives, item dates, new agencies, series, consignments, corrections, checking restricted access, new admin history, etc.; it’s enough to keep you up all night.

Catalogue updates - August 2017

Since the start of 2017, staff have been uploading new items to the online catalogue. Many of these descriptions have been created by our Work Experience Project teams over a number of years, and feature some extra details beyond merely the item title and date range.  You'll see material from the Egg Marketing Board of WA, some new intestate files and transfers from Mental Health., for instance. In addition, we’ve uploaded the remaining fieldbooks digitised with funding from the Friends of Battye.

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.
