Multiple Search Modes:
Concept, Boolean, Pattern

Using ArchivalWare’s intuitive full featured interface, search queries can be conducted using Boolean, natural language (concept), and pattern matching (fuzzy logic) methodologies, yielding pinpoint results. Queries can be made against the full-text of digital documents, rich metadata fields, or a combination of both. Retrieval of hits resulting from full text searches are highlighted directly on the document image for quick visual reference. Metadata fields can also be used to limit full-text searches or retrieve non-text digital objects, (i.e., search by date, author, publisher, etc.). Supported ancillary software includes image capture and conversion (OCR, enhancement, etc.), forms processing, Google Earth, web scraper/Spider, language tools, redaction tools, and workflow management.

Administrator Tools

Administration of ArchivalWare is simple with a web-based user interface to manage system functionality including system settings, fields, labels, indexing, reporting, and import and export of content. This allows ArchivalWare™ to be managed virtually anywhere through a standard browser interface. The interface also provides for complete management of all system users and groups, including access privileges, passwords, and default settings.

Open System Architecture

ArchivalWare is built using J2EE to provide an open architecture environment. In addition, ArchivalWare’s Application Programming Interface (API) enables integration with existing and future third party applications. Using the API, integration with federated search solutions, Workflow and Business Process Management systems, and legacy systems is easily performed.


ArchivalWare is designed for fast response time over local and wide area networks. The software design of ArchivalWare supports a distributed system configuration, which can be tuned to maintain performance regardless of database size or concurrent usage, by using schedulers, query servers and client handlers. Queries over multiple digital library collections can be sent to a single software query server, or distributed over multiple software servers to take advantage of current multi-processor server hardware.
