Built for archives by archivists, ArchivesSpace is the open source archives information management application for managing and providing web access to archives, manuscripts and digital objects.
ArchivesSpace (http://archivesspace.org) is community-supported software whose ongoing development is led, managed, implemented and funded by a diverse community of users, developers, and administrators all working together to achieve the goal of helping archives and cultural heritage institutions better manage and provide access to their collections.
ArchivesSpace 1.0 (released in 2013) was developed by Hudson Molonglo in partnership with the New York University Libraries, UC San Diego Libraries, and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Library and with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, organizational support from LYRASIS, and contributions from diverse persons in the archives community.
ArchivesSpace is free to download and use, but has a membership model to promote sustainability and the continuing development of the application and to support those who use it.
