Practical Technology for Archives
This article illustrates how archival finding aids or other documents in any common word processing file format can be mass converted to web friendly PDF and HTML formats with free software so they can be made available on the web. Files are initially uploaded to Google Drive, then converted and downloaded in either PDF or HTML format. For HTML files code is then edited in Notepad++ if necessary. The intended audience for this article is smaller institutions with fewer technological resources to devote to creating full EAD finding aids or exporting information to a database, but who nevertheless would like to place large numbers of finding aids or other text-based documents online.
