Accessible Archives, Inc. Selects Access Innovations, Inc. For Database XML Conversion


Albuquerque, NM (June 4, 2007) – Access Innovations, Inc. (Access), a leader in the data management industry, has been chosen to perform the XML conversion of Accessible Archives, Inc.’s online databases.

Accessible Archives publishes electronic full-text searchable historical databases containing primary source materials from 18th and 19th century American newspapers, periodicals and county histories.

Utilizing its Data Harmony suite of software products and its internal staff, Access converted some 150,000 pages of text – more than a gigabyte of information – from HTML Word to XML in conformity with a proprietary XML DTD.

The Data Harmony suite of products includes:

Thesaurus Master, for thesaurus, taxonomy, and ontology creation
