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.

State Archives in the National Anzac Centre, Albany

State Archives used in the National Anzac Centre, Albany

The SRO applauds the WA Museum’s work in developing, building and so successfully launching the National Anzac Centre in Albany in only 14 months. The SRO recognises that the development of exhibitions content for the new Anzac Centre required a lot of research of the WA Museum’s own collection and other key collections within and without DCA portfolio agencies, including State Archives held by the SRO.
