At the very heart of the pastview system and indeed at the heart of most archive collections is the catalogue. Your catalogue will probably list and describe the content of your archive within and across a number of categories and sub-categories (People, Places, Events etc.).

The pastview system allows the creation of multi-level, hierarchical archival descriptions in accordance with most Internationally Recognised Standards. The ‘tree-structure’ display with visually pleasing thumbnails enables you to view and browse through all the levels of the
catalogue with ease, regardless of complexity. What’s more, the simple and swift drag-and-drop feature allows collections to be moved and re-ordered in an instant.
