Lucidea’s Archival Collections Management Apps With Artificial Intelligence at SAA 2019

Sponsored by Businesswire

Lucidea, provider of ArchivEra, CuadraSTAR SKCA and Eloquent Archives, will participate in the Society of American Archivists (SAA) annual conference on August 4th and 5th.

Visit the Lucidea team at Booths 301 and 303 in the Exhibit Hall at the JW Marriott to see how easily their archival collections management solutions enable researchers and the public to connect with the historic materials archivists work hard to preserve.

Lucidea’s archives specialists will demonstrate the powerful and versatile capabilities of ArchivEra, CuadraSTAR SKCA, and Eloquent Archives that make them a valued technology partner in the archives community.

SAA attendees will be first to see Lucidea’s exciting new AI prototype for archives!

With Artificial Intelligence (AI) integration now available in ArchivEra, Lucidea’s clients will enjoy powerful automatic categorization functionality. Lucidea and IBM’s Watson bring new capabilities to archivists, facilitating access to their valued collections and raising archives’ public profile—fundamentally, helping fulfill their mission to identify records of enduring value, to preserve them, and to make them available to patrons.

Their AI prototype is easily configurable to categorize images—or any text fields, e.g. “Scope and Notes” using terminology and categorization that is meaningful to archivists. After content is submitted to Watson, it retrieves keywords and creates authority terms based on your preferences.

The possibilities for archives are endless; you can remove your backlog by quickly categorizing objects and making them discoverable, and you can even take on projects previously unimaginable due to size and cost. ArchivEra is your traditional and digital archiving solution, now with AI capabilities.

Better ways to create and manage archival hierarchies

Join Lucidea’s team for a special demo on August 5th from 12:00 to 12:30 in the mini-hall theater, “Create and Manage Archival Hierarchies, Your Way”. They’ll demonstrate how to build and reorganize hierarchies with ease using their archival collections management software. Enjoy varying levels of description, drag and drop navigation, and visualize your hierarchy while writing descriptions.

Meet the authors

Lucidea Press authors Margot Note (Demystifying Archival Projects: Five Essentials for Success) and Rachael Cristine Woody (A Survivor’s Guide to Museum Grant Writing) will be available for conversation and book signing at the booth on the evening of August 4th, and between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on August 5th.
