CollectiveAccess is comprised of two main components: Providence and Pawtucket.  

Providence is the core cataloguing application of CollectiveAccess, also know as the "back-end," where data, media and metadata is input, edited and managed. Pawtucket 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 directly from our GitHub repository.

If you'd like to try out a full working CollectiveAccess Providence and Pawtucket installation on your Macintosh or Windows PC without the hassle of setting up a server try the QuickStart packages below. The packages include all of the basic prerequisites and a pre-configured DublinCore-based installation of CollectiveAccess. Just download to you computer, unpack and click on the start button. Easy!

Note: QuickStart packages are intended for single-user evaluation only. If you plan to use CollectiveAccess for a real project it is strongly recommended that you install the standard application packages on appropriate server hardware
