Andornot is a well-respected Canadian provider of software and hosted solutions for libraries, archives, museums and other cultural and knowledge management organizations.
Since 1995, our team of professional librarians and software developers has provided information and knowledge management consulting, software selection and custom development, database design and data conversion, and technical support.
We are thrilled to be recognized by our clients and our peers for both our high quality of work and for the positive way that we do business. We love what we do, we have fun doing it, and we look forward to working with you.
We look forward to helping you manage and search your information resources.
These thoughts guide our everyday work.
We cherish libraries, archives and museums, their collections, and the people who staff and use them. We jump at opportunities to advocate for them, to make their collections more accessible, to teach new generations to manage them, to keep them from shuttering.
We Andornaughts are a curious people, in all senses of the word. We love problems, we seek out challenges, we enjoy hearing what stumps you, we'll leap at anything you throw at us.
We approach all projects with an open mind. We want to understand your needs, your users, your IT environment and your organizational culture. We find or develop products to suit your needs, keeping in mind your budget and other constraints. We don't shoehorn you into pre-conceived solutions, but use every project as an opportunity to craft the best fit for you.
In developing software solutions, we often select products from a combination of commercial vendors and open-source communities, matching the best tool for each aspect of a project.
For example, we might recommend that a library or archives might use DB/TextWorks for cataloguing and data management, but our Andornot Discovery Interface as the public-facing search interface, or FromThePage to crowdsource transcriptions from community members.
We speak IT as fluently as MARC, RAD, EAD, LCSH and the other acronyms and jargons of our profession. We are liasons between users and library / archival staff, between staff and IT, between staff and management. We translate the needs of one into the constraints of the other, finding the balance that enables a project to go ahead.
Andornot is pleased to support our colleagues, and meet with clients, at many conferences and trade shows throughout the year.
In 2023, we will be sponsoring and/or attending several conferences from library, archival and museum professional associations. The line-up is listed here, but be sure to watch our email newsletter for details too, as we'd love to meet with you in person again.
Andornot has offered professionally managed hosting services from our Canadian data centre for over 25 years.
In a cloud, in an unknown location? Is it difficult to obtain support for your application from your own IT group? Are your servers slow or due for replacement? Why not let Andornot help by having us host your data and applications?
