Following on from my Moodle repository escapades, I’ve now converted the Fez repository plugin into one that can search and link to items in Koha, the open source integrated library system (ILS).
Fez repository plugin for Moodle
I have been writing a plugin for the Moodle Repository API that can now browse and search records in a Fez digital repository. Here’s the simple configuration, using the RMIT Research Bank as an example public access Fez repository:
And here you can see that the plugin can browse communities, collections and records just like any other repository plugin:
So far, it only supports using external files, and the resulting links are links to the Fez record view, not the attached files. This also means that you still have to add the title and description manually, even though that metadata is present in the metadata of the files presented by the repository plugin! I hope to somehow fix this with work on MDL-32130 on the Moodle bug tracker.
