About This Site

The Denver Public Library is encoding finding aids in XML and publishing them on the web using PLEADE software enabling users to browse and read the finding aids online. PLEADE is a highly configurable Web publication framework, including a search engine, for Encoded Archival Description documents. The online finding aids show the structure of the document and provide a hypertext table of contents and a search engine.

The Denver Public Library received partial funding from the National Endowment of the Humanities for encoding the finding aids. More information...
