The basic modules Cemetery and Crematorium attune CIBIS to a cemetery or a crematorium respectively. The software also supports funeral center chains and allows you to work from several branches in a single integrated environment.
The basic modules are extendable with services for planning/booking funerals and rooms; selling food and drink and mementos at funerals; renting plots and physical memorials; invoicing goods and services delivered, including rental; and registering the grave deeds and all other aspects of rights involved in burial, cremation and deposition of ashes.
CIBIS links to external systems, allowing the use of standard solutions and off-the-shelf products. For instance, links are available to the population records, for name and address details; to your own organisation’s financial administration, for processing daily entries; and to Microsoft Office, to generate work schedules, correspondence, invoicing and overviews, including management reports.
After a successful pilot, all archives of the Regional Archive Nijmegen are now accessible on the Archives Portal Europe by a fully automated Open Data link from Atlantis (Collection Management Software). This involves over 1,200 finding aids with more than 300,000 archive material records.
Atlantis is the first archive management system in Europe establishing automatic publication of the archives overview. Wim van Dongen as project manager involved in the work says: “This is unique throughout Europe: no other collection management system has succeeded in the automatic publication of the archives overview so far.”
Archives Portal Europe
The Archives Portal Europe provides access to information on archives from different European countries as well as information on archival institutions throughout the continent.
By giving access to archives from all over Europe, the Archives Portal Europe provides the opportunity to detect common relationships while at the same time reflecting the diversity of national and regional developments.
EAD / XML link is phased out
As this pilot was running, the Archive Delft and municipal archive Schiedam also implemented the automatic link from Atlantis. These two archival institutions published their archives for some time already by EAD / XML they produced manually. Atlantis now takes care of creation and maintenance of the archives, to the Archives Portal Europe, fully automated.

Saturday, April 21, it was Heritage Day in Flanders (Belgium). This annually recurring cultural event focuses on movable and immaterial cultural heritage. This year the theme was “Choices”, a theme that has shaped dozens of cultural heritage organizations in their own way. Liberaal Archief Gent chose this moment to launch the new website and to announce a change of name to ‘Liberal Archive / Liberas’.
Liberal Archive / Liberas
Liberal Archive / Liberas is the heritage center for the history of the ideal of freedom in all its facets. The organization was founded in 1982 as a repository for the history of liberalism in Flanders and Belgium. In the meantime, Liberal Archive / Liberas has grown into an archive institution that also focuses on people, think groups, (non-pillar) professional organizations, liberal professions and all kinds of other groups that contribute to and works on the idea of freedom. This expansion in the field also resulted in a double denomination in the naming of the organisation, which was launched together with the new website.
Peter Laroy, director of Liberal Archive / Liberas, explains the renewal of the website: “The foundation of the first website of Liberal Archive / Liberas was in 1999. Over the past 18 years, there were ongoing developments, which indicates the stability of the platform that was chosen at the time. To meet the needs of today’s user it was necessary to renew the website.
For collection management, we have made the choice for Atlantis, the collection management system developed by DEVENTit. The collection of Liberaal Archief / Liberas is now easily searchable by the public. Moreover, the new website offers many opportunities to highlight the extensive public activities that are typical for Liberal Archive / Liberas.”
The choice for Atlantis
Liberal Archive / Liberas has chosen in 2016 for the introduction of a new collection management system. Jeroen Buysse, responsible for the digitization at Liberal Archive / Liberas and project manager for the implementation of Atlantis and the new website, says: “We were looking for a collection management system that met the needs of our medium-sized archive organization. We wished for a solution meeting the demands of a critical group of users. A new system also shouldn’t have a deterrent effect on employees and should have a low threshold. Atlantis perfectly met these conditions. The fact that Atlantis was used by many institutions like ours in the Netherlands and Flanders, reassured us. We are pleased that during this process we could always depend on DEVENTit’s expertise. Using Atlantis, we now offer the access to over 150,000 collection items, in many cases immediately linked to images. ”
DEVENTit also liked working with Liberal Archive / Liberas. “Liberal Archive / Liberas was clear in their demands, therefore a suitable solution could be offered rapidly”, says Annette Allaart, project manager at DEVENTit.
