ArchivesSpace Development Grant Awarded

New York University Libraries, in partnership with UC San Diego Libraries and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Libraries, has been awarded a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to lead a partnership in developing the software that integrates the Archivists' Toolkit (AT) and Archon into an open-source, next-generation archives management system. The integrated product, known by the working title ArchivesSpace (, will capitalize on the functional strengths of AT and Archon, both of which were released in 2006, to create a more powerful, flexible, and resilient archives collection management and access system.
