Hi,
No problem. We'll try to make it available next week or the week after.

Basically all we get from the ILS is a skeleton stucture with the record id and title. Something like:
<root bibid="0112" title="Collection level title">
     <node bibid="12345" title="Some title">
          <node bibid="6789" title="Some other title">
               <node bibid="etc" title="Some other title etc" />
               <node bibid="etc" title="Some other title etc" />
               <node bibid="etc" title="Some other title etc" />
          </node>
          <node bibid="6789" title="Some other title">
               <node bibid="etc" title="Some other title etc" />
          </node>
     </node>
</root>

This is enough for jstree to build the tree which allows the user to jump between standard vufind records. I'd imagine you could get to this structure from EAD pretty easily but I haven't used it myself.

Cheers,
Eoghan

Hi Eoghan,

 

Yes  - I believe Clam does have an EAD Export – As you say, the major issue is how the information is displayed.

 

Hierarchical XML sounds very useful! I have a flat dump of XML and there’s no hierarchy to it – we just have codes like WWE/1/1/1/2 which I would otherwise have to tokenise in order to sort properly.

 

I’d very much like to have a look at what you have J

 

Cheers,

 

Luke

Hi,
Eric has aleady got EAD files in CRRA. Does Calm allow EAD export?

We've done some work too. Our ILS, Virtua, has an Archives Management module which allows you to arrange MARC bibs into an archival tree arrangement. We can index these individual bibs into Vufind in the normal way. We have extended our ILS Driver to get the hierarchical arrangement back as hierarchical XML directly from the ILS DB. We then pass this to jstree [1] so we can display the archival tree either from the results or full-record page and allow users to browse the tree and jump directly to other records.

We don't have this on a publically available server at the moment. I'm away this week, but we should be able to make it available for you to have a look.

It should be possible to reuse some of the code for a more generic solution, e.g. instead of getting xml from the ILS, you could pass it in an EAD file.


Cheers,
Eoghan

Hi Folks,

 

Has anyone attempting to use VuFind with archival data, specifically with Calm?
