UKAD forum 2014: Standards in archival collection management systems

Malcolm Howitt explores developing collection management systems for archives and the balance between offering flexible data management tools and support for an increasing variety of data standards.

The United Kingdom Archives Discovery (UKAD) network is a collaborative group of archives and other information professionals, of which The National Archives is part, who are working towards opening up data in order to promote the use of archives.

The forum is an opportunity for archivists and information professionals to hear and share some of the latest thinking around online access to archives and archives data and share ideas around making archives more accessible through online development.

Malcolm Howitt has worked for more than 25 years in the UK information management sector and he is now part of the management of Axiell’s new ALM business in the UK.
