The West Vancouver Archives has been a long time user of Inmagic software and Archives On line. A new searchable interface to their descriptions database is now available from the District of West Vancouver website at http://archives.westvancouver.ca/.
This interface was developed by Andornot using Inmagic WebPublisher PRO and Andornot’s Archival Starter Kit as a basis. A neat feature is the addition of links to biographical or administrative history data which is maintained in a separate textbase. To see examples of these, search on Cypress Park Primary School or Rupert Harris on and click on the Creator link in the full record display.
Over a thousand images have been scanned. Searches can be restricted to just these records by checking the box to limit to electronic items only on the Advanced search screen.
The archivist, Shaunna Moore gave us some great feedback:
"Andornot consistently demonstrated a dedication to our project that exceeded our expectations. By providing a comprehensive knowledge of the software combined with an enthusiasm to meeting the particulars of our organizational needs, the Andornot team ensured that our end product was a user friendly archival database system ideally suited to our staff and community."
