Resources for Archivists

The Utah State Archives has developed some procedures in the way we do our work that may benefit other institutions.

Digital Preservation




  • Training materials produced for the State Electronic Records Initiative (SERI) regarding the preservation of electronic records


APPX-based Archives Enterprise Manager (Axaem) Software - The Utah State Archives has made its software available under an open-source license (GPL, with an exception), which any archival institution may use.

Features of Axaem include:

  • the ability to manage temporary records and permanent holdings
  • describe records using the DACS standard
  • generate retention schedules (general and specific)
  • track microfilm and imaged records
  • identify creators and subjects through authority files
  • track patron questions
  • export MARC records
  • produce EAD and EAC output
  • interface with your institution's website
