Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) July 25, 2006
Eloquent Systems will be demonstrating its leading-edge Automated EAD Encoding solution at the upcoming DC 2006 Joint Annual Meeting of the Society of American Archivists (SAA), the National Association of Government Archives and Records Administrators (NAGARA) and the Council of State Archivists (CoSA), which will be held August 2–4, 2006, in Washington DC.
The Automated EAD Encoding solution expedites efforts to federate archives by streamlining and eliminating many of the tedious manual efforts associated with the EAD encoding process. By selecting top-level records, the solution enables all lower levels to be quickly and easily encoded and exported with their related text and images.
“Our Automated EAD Encoding module is very well respected in the industry and has been adopted by several archives in the United States,” said Merv Richter, President of Eloquent Systems. “Our customers really like the fact that the solution is quick and simple and that they aren’t required to have knowledge of EAD encoding specifications in order to take advantage of the standard. The only thing our users need to do is enter the metadata descriptions into the appropriate fields on the Web interface.”
“At Eloquent Systems, we design our products to make it easy for our clients to capture and describe their data and for their end-users to search and access that information,” Richter continued. “Our core WebGENCAT system is highly regarded in the industry for its power and flexibility, and our flexible hosting options ensure that our clients can choose the paths that best fit their IT environments and budget constraints.”
The Automated EAD Encoding module complements Eloquent’s core WebGENCAT solution, which has been designed to support traditional archival and collection descriptions as well as new multimedia content that includes oral histories, scanned photographs, PDF documents and links to external content. Users accessing content syndicated through the EAD Encoding module can link back into the source database to view the complete records and artifacts.
