Integrating Proficio & Drupal
Proficio is a collections and archives management solution for physical and digital assets used by museums, libraries, corporations and organizations with private collections. Purely Interactive’s solution provides the ability to display these collections and archives for researchers and the public online in a website hosted in any environment including sites built on the Drupal content management platform.
Objects and Exhibits
The Purely Interactive service can create one JSON file for each collection or one JSON file for all collections. The service can also generate create one JSON file for each exhbit or one JSON file for all exhibits. The JSON files contain all of the Web Ready objects in each collection and exhibit. These feeds can be imported to any site - this means the public-facing site can be hosted in any environment.
The Drupal Feeds module is used to import the JSON feeds into nodes / taxonomy terms and map the fields. The Drupal Feeds Tamper module is used to process the data before it's imported when it's not possible or feasible to do that on the Proficio server. The collections and archives information can now be made available on the website for visitors to search, browse and view.
