Generating Public Access Copies

Once a preservation copy is created, the information must be added into Archon and made available to the public. If you have initial questions or concerns about copyright, please read the Copyright Guidelines.

NOTE: All Archon digital library entries must have a unique identifier, located under the General tab.

Though rare, if the record series has multiple digital control cards for the same type of entry, the identifier must reflect this with an additional number at the end (example: 1505050-online-1, 1505050-online-2, and 1505050-online-3).

Note: Some series may have both online and nearline records in Archon.
