“Archibald” is a digital library cataloging digital content used for teaching and learning. It offers a catalog, search and filter functions, file handling and a comprehensive user interface. A primary function is to describe a learning resource in its educational context, its conditions of use and its access. The specified learning object can be located anywhere in the internet or uploaded.

The structure of the description and the taxonomies are based on the learning object metadata standard (IEEE LOM Learning Object Metadata, 2002). Taxonomies can be added manually or imported from any ontology server. “Archibald” supports in its process the multi-language description of learning objects.

Functions to display, edit, store, retrieve and export the metadata of the catalog entries are implemented as well as the option to export these LOM-structured metadata into the catalog of the Swiss national digital library. (This export function requires digital certificates for user authentication and a specific contract.)
Besides it includes a fine system of rights and roles assignment to define the workflow of cataloging and/or the area of competence with the possibility to activate or hide single input fields and form sections per role.

This module is intended to serve individuals and institutions of the educational systems, but may be used for any catalog application, too.

Core functions are:

  • user interface with search and filter
  • configurable user interface to catalog resources
  • taxonomy to assign curriculums to resources
  • Is an implementation of LOM data structures and taxonomies
