Postby singhkarki » Thu Feb 20, 2014 4:14 am

hello,
I want to harvest bound volumes of journals using OHS. could you tell me if OHS is suitable for it.

Also, if i want to use my OHS server as a Z39.50 server , how can i do it? Is the PKP ohs database a Z39.50/SRU/SRW compliant database , and if not what would be the steps required to achive that functionality?

thanks and regards,

Hi Vijay,

OHS is not a Z39.50 server; to implement that would take considerable coding. You could follow the OHS OAI interface as an example.

hello Sir,
my project requires me to add Z39.50 functionality in OHS. Could you please guide me ? How was the functionality for oai-pmh added in ohs ? Is there any written docuementation which i may refer for help ? There are four places in ohs where the functionality for oai is written viz, classes, lib, pages, plugins. Is it just that simple ? What are the other challenges i may face and what are the pitfalls ? Please advice me. it will be really helpful.
Any idea whether any plugin was ever written for providing Z39.50 functionality in ohs ?

thanks and regards,
Vijay

Hi Vijay,

As far as I'm aware, no Z39.50 plugin has been written for OHS.

You can find OHS documentation at http://pkp.sfu.ca/ohs/ohs_documentation/; the technical reference is slightly out of date on the subject of record storage, but otherwise should be accurate.

Hi Vijay,

I can't think of any reason why not...

hello Sir,
My current task requires me to harvest bound volumes of journals , using Open Harvester System. I have already harvested few archives using ohs. All these harvested archives had only books and no journals. My work now requires me to use the same instance of harvester and harvest journals with bound volumes.
Please suggest.

thanks and Regards,

Vijay

Hi Vijay,

You will need to get these into an OAI-compliant repository first, such as OJS.

hello Sir, thanks for your reply,
the architecture i am following currently is as follows:

OHS (Service Provider) ------------------ KOHA (Data Provider)

here , Koha is an OAI compliant repository.
the question i have is :

I have put all the data for bound volumes of journal, in KOHA (data provider) . Does ohs take any extra processing when it harvests journal data of bound volumes ?


thanks ,

Vijay

Hi Vijay,

No, it will treat all content equivalently.

hello Sir,
Could you please elaborate , why pkp ohs uses tinyMCE WYSIWYG editor ?
Can tinyMCE be used to change the style of harvested metadata ?

thanks and Regards,

Vijay

Hi Vijay,

TinyMCE is used for various parts of the setup and configuration of the user interface by the administrator. It doesn't affect harvested content.

thanks Sir, for your prompt reply, that was helpful,
As you suggested, TinyMCE is used for various parts of the setup and configuration of the user interface by the administrator.
So, if i want to customize the UI of OHS and change the header, footer, sidebars etc, how can i use tinyMCE?
Has this code snippett previously been given on the forum?

thanks,
Regards,

Vijay

Hi Vijay,

Any regular text box will be converted to a TinyMCE rich text editor control if you specify it in the list maintained in plugins/generic/tinymce/TinyMCEPlugin.inc.php in the getEnableFields function.

hello Sir,
Glad to be here after some long time, Sir, i have three requests
(i) i am implementing some challenging Z39.50 functionality in ohs, I need to use development environment . Please guide me which IDE can i use for pkp. Will Netbeans IDE for php suffice for the purpose.It would be helpful if you could guide me with some good open source ide.
Also, is there any installer for windows for pkp . I currently use it in CentOS. If i have to install it in windows , what would be the steps?

(ii) In PKP OHS , suppose i have a book record and the book record belongs to a library , now if i have to send a mail to the librarian to get that book record. Have you written this code earlier? If not , will it be suffice to use the mail function of old php to do so ?

(iii) Which version of php has been used to develop ohs ? it's object oriented php, but what's the version?


thanks ,

regards,


Vijay
