The University of Illinois is a partner in the project to develop a next-generation archival management tool.

  • See the ArchivesSpace website for project updates.
  • In the meantime, maintenance updates and support for Archon will continue through this website.

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.

Read More about Archon's Features

*The term "collection" is used in Archon simply as shorthand, to mean any group of archival records or personal papers managed as a discrete unit by a repository or manuscript library. Archon is flexible enough to be used for organically-related records, manuscript collections, or both. The display of "collection" labels in the public interface can be tailored to reflect specific repository needs.
