Abstract

This article explores one way of presenting archival information using the World Wide Web. It shows how different kinds of archival descriptive information resting in electronic formats in various legacy systems can be integrated and presented in a single view/window using flexible, simple information technology tools. It also presents to archivists the advantages of accessing integrated archival information on more than one archival function to enhance the archivist's conceptual knowledge of the record and records creators.
