Getting Started
CollectiveAccess is comprised of two main components: Providence and Pawtucket2.
Providence is the core cataloguing application of CollectiveAccess, also know as the "back-end," where data, media and metadata is input, edited and managed. Pawtucket2 is the optional public web-access or "front-end" tool for publication and discovery. If you are starting out with CollectiveAccess, your first download should be Providence, either from this page or by cloning our GitHub repository.
