         Subject: LEADERS toolkit for online archives now available

The School of Library, Archive and Information Studies, University
College London, in collaboration with BookMARC of Coimbra, Portugal,
is pleased to announce the availability of the LEADERS toolkit via
SourceForge, http://leaders.sourceforge.net/

LEADERS is a generic toolkit that enables the creation of an online
environment which integrates EAD finding aids and EAC authority records
with TEI transcripts and digitized images of archival material. It is
suitable for a wide variety of archives.

The toolkit can be configured to search different XML elements
and to display the results in a variety of formats. A demonstrator
application is available via the LEADERS Project home page at
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/leaders-project/. This site also includes
background material on the XML applications used by LEADERS,
on related projects and on research on the needs of archive users.

LEADERS was funded by a Resource Enhancement award from the UK Arts
and Humanities Research Board.
