The ARPO Index measures the degree to which an archival website, including its collection management tool’s public face, provides elements that enable a researcher to fully prepare online for an on-site research visit. This online Assessment Tool provides an interface for reviewing a website with the ARPO Index.
For a more detailed look at the process, see “Evaluating How Well an Archival Website Allows a Researcher to Prepare for an On-Site Visit” in The American Archivist.
