Serial Solution Pack Build Status


Adds all required Fedora objects to allow users to model, ingest and view objects modelled as serials within the Islandora interface.


This module requires the following modules/libraries:


Install as usual, see this for further information.

Download/clone the jsTree library to sites/all/libraries/jstree. Version 3.0.0 is required.


  • The "Islandora Serial Object Tree View" block may be enabled to view the full structure of a Serial object. Required to expose and manage serial object hierarchies.
  • The "View: Islandora Serial Object Intermediate PDF View" block may be enabled if the Islandora Solr Views module is installed.
  • To make PDFs visible when viewing serial objects, configure the solution pack (admin/islandora/solution_pack_config/serial) and check "Display PDFs and sections in the jsTree view".

Preparing and ingesting serial objects

  • To create a top-level container object (e.g. a journal), ingest an object with the Serial Object content model.
  • Under Serial Level Configuration, set up the structure of your serial. (e.g. Level 1 might use the MODS detail type "volume", and the label "Volume". Level 2 might be "issue" and "Issue".)
  • After clicking Next, the "Create Intermediate Children" screen comes up. Here you can add levels (e.g. volumes and issues), which will act as containers for your PDFs.
    • Click "Add Another" to create a Level 1 container. It is automatically assigned the Level 1 label.
    • Click "Add Another", and a second Level 1 container will appear. You can drag it to the right to make it a Level 2 container. The label will change.
  • To ingest a PDF under a given level, click on that level in the tree, and click Manage. Then click PDF Manageement, and add PDFs or sections.
