Curator Monitor (plugin for Omeka)
Curator Monitor is a plugin for Omeka that allows a curator to monitor the status of the collections. It creates an element set to manage administrative status of records (transcription, translation, notes, etc.) and adds a view to follow evolution of items. Element and terms can be added and modified at any time.
Add, modify and remove elements
- To manage elements, go to Settings > Element Sets > Monitor > Edit.
- Once inserted, the name and the description can't be changed via the interface like fields of other element sets. The comment and the other options can be updated at any time.
- To remove an element, a security is added: a checkbox in the config page of the plugin should be checked before.
Export of stats
Stats can be filtered and exported via the main page of the plugin. Supported formats are:
- CSV, with values separated by a tabulation.
- OpenDocument Spreadsheet or "ods", the normalized format for spreadsheets, that can be open by any free spreadsheets like LibreOffice, or not free ones. This format requires that Zip to be installed on the server (generally by default).
- Flat OpenDocument Spreadsheet or "fods", another standard format that can be opened by any free spreadsheets or by any text editor (this is a simple xml file). Note: With old releases of LibreOffice for Windows, a little free filter may need to be installed.
Uncompress files and rename plugin folder "CuratorMonitor".
Then install it like any other Omeka plugin.
Use it at your own risk.
It’s always recommended to backup your files and your databases and to check your archives regularly so you can roll back if needed.
