I received a question via email asking about Archon and how it compares to Greenstone. As I look quickly at Archon, it seems like that software is meant for creating digital finding aids. (see also) It's stated purpose is different than Greenstone, which "is a suite of software for building and distributing digital library collections." This person compares Archon to the Archivists Toolkit that has also been released, which is also for finding aids. I do see Archon described as being software for a digital library, but its own web site doesn't seem to describe it that way. However, both are open source software.
So...here are the question... Is anyone using Archon? If yes, what other products did you consider (e.g., Greenstone, DSpace, etc.) ? What are you using it for (e.g., finding aids, digital objects)?
I -- and a person in Florida -- thank you for your replies!
