  • reference documentation : the Cataloguing Manual (help for users of the cataloguing tool), the National Guide of Best EAD Practices in Libraries (login required) ;
  • data exports functions (Marc format, export of best EAD practices…) ;
  • open data : records made accessible on the Web in compliance with the SiteMaps protocol principle and in RDFa; EAD records converted to Dublin Core and made available on a OAI-PMH server ;
  • personalisation of the search interface is possible ;
  • various ways of linking records to scanned images of documents (particularly the “Calames Plus” image deposit feature) ;
  • possible financial aid packages, under certain conditions, for the retrospective conversion of member institutions’ listings ;
