Tord Gustavsen Trio
The Ground

Two years ago the Tord Gustavsen Trio released the extraordinary successful debut-album"Changing Places". With his new CD "The Ground" he created another masterpiece. Together with bassist Harald Johnsen and drummer Jarle Vespestad Tord Gustavsen guides the audience on a faint melancholic and unique journey. Enjoyable sophisticated music to relax and meditate. A spellbinding work of art. »

Digitization of political documents at the "Austrian State Archives"

At the end of 1997 the Austrian State Archives together with the Bruno Kreisky Archives Foundation started an innovative digitization project. Two different kinds of cabinet documents had to be archived using digital technology:
  • 114 boxes filled with correspondence and political documents, which where collected during the period of government of Dr. Fred Sinowatz, a former chancellor of Austria, and
  • an extensive collection of material originating from the heritage of Dr. Christian Broda, a former minister of justice.
The goal of the project was to establish a real digitial archive by providing historians a number of research tools and giving them direct access to facsimiles of the documents. M-IT's Archiopteryx was used to build the archive. It allows researchers to browse the archive by topic and to search by criteria including document descriptions, physical characteristics, keywords and associated persons. Related documents are linked in multiple ways. In case the digitized version is not sufficient, retrieving the original files is easy. In addition to the logical structure of the archive Archiopteryx also stores its physical organization.
