The Archives of Appalachia at East Tennessee State University (ETSU) recently attempted to improve subject access to its holdings through the development of a computer-based subject access system. The project and the subject access system have been given the acronym "ACSAS" (pronounced access), for "Archival Computerized Subject Access System." This article describes the subject access system and its development and concludes with an analysis of the system and the future role of such systems.
