  10. 10. Organising the content Structural sets • Internal organisation of content • Used to assign permissions – objects inherit set rights • User never sees these • All objects must be assigned a structural set Display sets • Ad hoc assignation to enable access to objects via their collection • Objects may belong to none, one or more display sets • Optional use • Informed by desire to generate time-bound collections, e.g., for online Archive exhibitions Hydra Connect | January 2014 | 10
  11. 11. Queue management • All objects go through a managed workflow • Using queue ‘sets’ • Objects created start in the proto-queue • All metadata and content added • When saved they move into the QA queue • Quality checks carried out and permissions added • If there is an issue with an item it gets moved to the Hidden queue • Admin users can move items to the Deleted queue • Though they are retained just in case • Managed using State Machine gem • Uses multiple ‘isMemberOf’ relationships Hydra Connect | January 2014 | 11
  12. 12. Looking ahead • Add image management workflow • Install, play and feed back on ArchiveSphere • Develop research data catalogue – And extend service for managing datasets • Feed repository into broader discovery environment – Including library catalogue and Summon • Implement Blacklight for archives catalogue • …plenty to talk about at next Hydra Connect!
