What is

ArchivEra

ArchivEra is Lucidea’s feature-rich Collections Management Solution, developed to make archives accessible in ways that go far beyond traditional methods. It embodies best-practice collections management gained over 20 years of supporting archives clients, and is purpose-built for archivists tackling today’s collections management challenges and preparing for tomorrow.

Unlike a traditional CMS, fully Web-based ArchivEra allows archives to easily offer public portal access to holdings, provide in-depth descriptions of collections and fonds (delivering multimedia content in context), leverage efficient purpose-built workflows with minimal training required, and adhere to archival standards, including EAD3.

ArchivEra delivers the world-class power and innovative technology needed to move archival collections management forward, with essential features like workflows that map to archivists’ requirements, easy finding aid generation, unrivaled hierarchy management, adherence to archival standards (ISAD(G), DACS, RAD, Dublin Core, EAD3), email integration for automated research request database creation, and an integrated portal to inform, educate and delight virtual visitors.
