Elgin County Archives Launches New Archival Search Interface

The Elgin County Archives, in St. Thomas, Ontario, has been using Inmagic DB/TextWorks for many years to manage its collections.

Recently the DB/TextWorks databases and interface were upgraded with the Andornot Archives Starter Kit, to provide a RAD-compliant structure and easy-to-use search screens and forms.

This month the web interface was also upgraded. The new interface uses a similar layout and design as the main Elgin County website, for a seamless transition for users. Both sites use a responsive framework, so they are as accessible on mobile devices as in desktop browsers.

The searchable database contains over 120,000 records, with high resolution photos available for almost half the records.

Popular topics include:
