The purpose of COVAX is to analyze and create the technical solutions required to provide access through the Internet to homogeneously-encoded document descriptions of archive, library, and museum collections based in the application of XML. This paper describes the development of the project, and the main achievements in building an information system of distributed XML databases containing document descriptions from libraries, archives, and museums emphasizing the conversion processes needed to transform legacy data to an XML environment. © 2003 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
