Andornot develops search engines and virtual exhibit systems that help museums showcase their collections, as well as providing back-end artifact and archival record management systems.

Andornot has an excellent understanding of the requirements and challenges faced by modern archives. Our archival clients range from large municipal archives staffed by professional archivists to small community archives or historical associations often run by volunteers. We have designed many archival and museum content management solutions to organize:

  • Archival Descriptions
  • Accessions
  • Artifacts
  • Photo and Image collections
  • Oral histories
  • Library materials
  • Volunteer management
  • Records management


The following sites showcase Andornot's Discovery Interface, an excellent choice for archives and museums wanting the best possible search experience for their users:

The blog posts to the right provide recent more details of these and other archives and museums we've worked with. Our client page lists selected other organizations we've worked with.


The Andornot Discovery Interface is our recommended application for searching museum and archival collections, with Inmagic DB/TextWorks and our Andornot Archives Starter Kit as a great back-end data management system.

Omeka is a great choice for building virtual exhibit websites.

"We are very pleased with the quality of the database products, the special features Andornot was able to integrate, the successful seamless integration into our main website and ease with which we were able to upgrade from our previous databases to this new solution. In the short time since these applications were made available online, the comments have been very positive. We were also happy to work with the Andornot people and impressed by their efficiency, attention to our goals and objectives and courteous service." Gilles Lesage, Directeur général, La Société historique de Saint-Boniface

Getting an archival or museum system running quickly is easy when you contact Andornot.
