Museums and the Web

An annual conference exploring the social, cultural, design, technological, economic, and organizational issues of culture, science and heritage on-line.

Using eHive Collection Management System to create custom sites and applications

Abstract

This briefing showcases eHive's new programming interface and easy to use Wordpress plug-ins. These allow individual collectors and cultural heritage organisations to build their own custom sites and applications on top of eHive's data storage platform.

eHive is a web-based collections management system. It is available as software as a service, with Vernon Systems managing the hardware and software while the collecting organisation concentrates on their core activities.

As well as offering core cataloging and collection management functions, eHive includes options to publish all or a selection of the records and images from a collection. The new programming interfaces extend this further, offering simple ways to publish the content elsewhere on the web. eHive has built-in support for a range of licences per image, including Creative Commons.

This briefing shows examples of the API and Wordpress plug-ins in use and outlines future plans.
