ArchivesSpace is an open source, web application for managing
archives information. The application is designed to support core
functions in archives administration such as accessioning; description
and arrangement of processed materials including analog, hybrid, and
born-digital content; management of authorities (agents and subjects)
and rights; and reference service. The application supports collection
management through collection management records, tracking of events,
and a growing number of administrative reports. The application also
functions as a metadata authoring tool, enabling the generation of EAD,
MARCXML, MODS, Dublin Core, and METS formatted data.
ArchivesSpace is a program with a current staff of 3 FTE, a community of over 300 members, and three administrative groups—a Governance Board (elected), a Technical Advisory Council (appointed), and an Users Advisory Council (appointed)—and published Bylaws. LYRASIS is the organizational home for ArchivesSpace
