I’m looking for integrating a newspapers collection in Omeka-s. Each document of this collection are both in PDF format (with plain text) and in ALTO format (derivated from my PDF documents).
My first approch was to acces my PDF documents with the PDF viewer embedded in each page. In this case, it’s not possible to use the IIIF API to redistribute and re-use informations contained into these documents for example. The search fonctionalities into the PDF viewer are a little basic too.
So, I want to use my ALTO documents into Universal Viewer. At this time, I don’t understand excatly what is the good way to do this. Actually, for each PDF document, several documents are products during the ALTO translation process (one XML file by document and some PNG files (one by page of the document)). How can I link properly these files (XML + PNGs) to one item ?
Ideally, I want to be able to search terms directly into Universal Viewer but I don’t know if the IIIF Search module is up to date on the last version of Omeka-S.
So, have you any idea to do this properly ?
Thanks by advance.
