A New Option for Clients of the Archivision Library
Receive the Archivision Library cataloged in VireoCat.
VireoCat is a free cataloging utility written in FileMaker Pro that is VRA Core 4 and CCO compliant. VireoCat is capable of exporting and importing data in both the Core 4 XML format and in an easy-to-use flattened csv (comma separated value) format. Quickly and efficiently start up both your cataloging system and your digital collections by requesting the Archivision Library in VireoCat. All Addition Modules are also available in this software.
Developed by Susan Jane Williams, a recipient of the 2007 Nancy DeLaurier Award given by the Visual Resources Association in recognition of her work with VireoCat, the database itself is free to all. Users must have FileMaker Pro, version 7 or later, to open and use the database.
There is an active roster of institutions already using VireoCat, a website (which includes downloads and support
documents) and a listserv. For more information about VireoCat, please visit:
