For those who would like to try out ArchivesSpace without installing the application on their own servers, an ArchivesSpace sandbox is available. The links below provide access to the interface for archival staff and the interface for the general public.

Archives Staff


In the Archives Staff interface, use the login and password admin/admin to access all of the features of the application. If you create a separate user account, be sure to associate the user account with an existing repository and permission group or create a new repository and associate the user account with it.

Please note that the sandbox is for testing purposes only. Records created in the sandbox are cleared out frequently as updates are made to the application. Please contact the ArchivesSpace Program Office at if you have any difficulties or questions about accessing the sandbox.
