progress notes

Short list of progress made on interface functionality:

  • Simple searches implemented for across collections and within a collection.
    • Searches currently do not de-dupe or use any sort of relevancy ranking.
    • After the prototype demo I will probably investigate using lucene for searches. There has been some talk on the eXist website about how to integrate lucene and eXist.
  • Browse by title page created and formatted, there are several options for browsing that still need to be implemented, including a main browse page that lists all options. I’m partial to the LOC’s implementation of this ala the Making of America website.
  • Collection page created, there remain some decisions to be made about how users will be browsing within a collection, and how to pull that information in the most efficient manner possible. The CSS for this page remains a little buggy.
  • Item pages started.
