“I am writing to express how very pleased I am with the Eloquent Archives software. It is difficult to know where to begin in addressing the many marvelous ways Eloquent Archives has served us, so I will endeavor to bring them together under 3 main headings: administrative, ease of use, and public access. Eloquent Archives has provided a strong, user friendly platform that has allowed me to begin bringing accessions, de-accessions, processing, arranging, describing, digitizing, and records stewardship together in one system that is streamlined and efficient.” said Terry L. Potter, Director of the J. Welles Henderson Archives & Library, Independence Seaport Museum.
