Inside the Archives – August 2012 – Volume I. Number 1

We have expanded and updated our customer support capabilities during the first half of 2012.  We have put them all together for you in Inside the Archives. Subscribe to Inside the Archives by email.

Here are some of the exciting events that have occurred so far this year.

User Manual — We have issued an updated version of our comprehensive online User Manual.  This latest iteration is more user-oriented as it expands and simplifies search capabilities in a number of areas.  A newly created PDF version is available, as well, providing the means for easier printing of the manual and off-line reference activity.

MARC Records — We have completed the addition of full MARC records for each individual publication contained within our family of databases, and at the same time improved searchability. You can request free access to these records by emailing Tom Nagy at

Shibboleth — We have become fully Shibboleth® compliant.  Shibboleth is an advanced networking consortium used by the 900-member UK Access Management Federation for Education and Research to provide a single solution for accessing online resources and services.  Our UK customers are now able to access their current holdings via this standards-based, open source system.

Remote Access — We have upgraded our system to provide public library users with remote access to the collections through barcode authentication.

New Address – In May 2012 we moved our operations to a new and expanded facility.  This move will improve physical capacity and expand customer service
