Our Philosophies

These thoughts guide our everyday work.

We are librarians

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 are a curious people

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 are open-minded

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.

 

We seek the best fit

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 are multi-lingual

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.

Conferences and Events

We hope to meet with you at one of these upcoming conferences and events.
