Archon is award-winning software for archivists and manuscript curators. It automatically publishes archival descriptive information and digital archival objects in a user-friendly website. With Archon, there is no need to encode a finding aid, input a catalog record, or program a stylesheet. Archon's powerful scripts will automatically make everything in the system searchable and browsable on your repository's website!

Archon will simplify your life and save you time. Once you have input or edited information using some simple web forms, Archon automatically uploads the information, publishes the website, and generates EAD and MARC records.

Archon requires only a blank MySQL or Microsoft SQL Server database and a webserver (of any type) running PHP 5.0 or higher. An installer is provided. If you do not know what information to provide on the initial page of the installer, provide the file "Installation Instructions.pdf" to a system administrator, who can then either install the application for you or provide you the correct information to install it yourself.

Archon is optimized to run on a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) platform. Archon project staff cannot assist with configuring web or database servers to install Archon Such questions should be directed to the Archon forum.
