Description

Since 2007 the Orbis Cascade Alliance has operated Archives West: a centralized repository of over 42,000 finding aids from institutions across six western states. The Alliance recently replaced the proprietary software used to index finding aids for searching and browsing, Ixiasoft TEXTML, with the open-source project BaseX. This presentation will provide an introduction of BaseX and how it can be used to create fulltext-searchable databases from large collections of XML documents.
