A review of Archives Management Software is now available from the Council of Nova Scotia Archives website. Andornot was contacted in the summer and supplied a trial version of Archives Online and Inmagic DB/TextWorks. We were also interviewed by phone and provided an overview of the software in a web based training session. CNSA also contacted clients using each software package for their feedback.
We are delighted that Archives Online was picked as one of the top three programs that stood out from the rest. "If a simple but fully featured and highly customizable program is needed, Archives Online is a good choice." Andornot also came out well in the Software Support and Sustainability section - "Of all of the vendors that were contacted for this project, Andornot was the most responsive and helpful."
Contact us for more information or a demo of Archives Online - either the desktop version reviewed here or the optional web searching interface.

Back in June I posted about how to get Hit-a-Hint to work with Firefox 3.*. HaH is a Firefox extension that aims to make web surfing with a keyboard as usable as possible. However, HaH is no longer under active development (which actually was the impetus for the June post as it needed some tweaks just to get it to work with newer versions of Firefox).
But now there's a replacement! A new extension on the block, LoL, is a new and improved fork of HaH (and although I am a Nerd, I don't know why it's called LoL because I don't know what it would have to do with laughing out loud - can anybody enlighten me?). It's got everything HaH had, but also provides user-configurable keys and the ability to "intercept" link clicks with the space bar. Of course, it also work with Firefox 3 right out of the virtual box. Check out the developer's site at http://elder-gods.org/lol/. Thanks Larry!
