Developers and Partners

Archon: Partner Project to AvSAP

Archivists and programmers with the University of Illinois Archives have built the base of AvSAP program using the open-source archival description tool Archon. The use of Archon as the foundation of AvSAP benefits each project in that they work independently or cohesively, providing description support and additional functionality to the end user. For more information about the Archon project, please see the Archon Project homepage.

Who Developed the AvSAP

The University of Illinois, led by the University of Illinois Library has several departments that will serve as test-beds and advisers for the project: The University of Illinois Archives, WILL AM/FM/TV, The Spurlock Museum, University of Illinois departments such as the Department of Dance, The Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, and the Illinois Heritage Association. A generous National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences (IMLS) supports the project. The development of the program began in May of 2007 and the project will be completed in the Spring of 2010.
