New Westminster Archives Database Now Online

by Kathy Bryce Monday, June 06, 2011 9:05 AM

New Westminster is the oldest city in Western Canada with a long and rich history.   Andornot has been working with the City Archives for several years and is delighted that a search interface to selected archival records and photos is now available at http://archives.newwestcity.ca.  “This will be the first time in our city’s history that people with access to the Internet will be able to view our excellent photograph collection from either the comfort of their homes or any other location in the world,” says archivist Barry Dykes.  Read the complete press release here. Archives search results screenshot

Behind the scenes the Archives uses Inmagic DB/Text for SQL software plus a version of the Andornot Archives Starter Kit to manage their archival descriptions.  A subset of records in the database is then transferred to the public facing website outside the firewall.  

“We enjoyed working with Andornot and are very pleased with the search interface they developed for us.  The advice and suggestions we received along the way were essential to the completion of this project. For instance, they encouraged us to incorporate some of the latest social bookmaking tools. “  [Barry Dykes]
