Hello - I hope it is ok to ask the community to help me assess whether Omeka S will work for me. (A few years ago I tried to implement Omeka Classic and wasn’t happy).
I run The Zuckerberg Files, which is a digital archive of everything Mark Zuckerberg says in public. We have about 1000 records, mostly PDF transcripts, but also a few hundred MP4 video files as well. A sample record is at https://www.zuckerbergfiles.org/records/2018-097/
We recently started using Wordpress Download Manager as a platform, but I’m not thrilled with its layout and searchability. I’m hoping the new Omeka S might be a good option for me.
Here are my core requirements (and sorry if my terms don’t follow the new glossary):
- Ability to have multiple downloadable media files attached to a single record (ie, both a PDF and an MP4 file)
- Ability to either (a) let anyone view records but only users with a certain access control can download the media file, or (b) hide all records unless user has access control permissions
- Ability to search full-text of PDF or txt files attached to a record.
- Flexibility in directory displays of items in the collection.
Do you think Omeka S will work for me?
