Archaeovision were approached by East Anglian Archaeology to explore the provision of online access to their back catalogue of monographs. This would involve the construction of a repository where all past issues of EAA would be described, made searchable, and where stock is still available, provide links to buy copies. Older back issues would be scanned and made available as an open access PDF.
We worked closely with East Anglian Archaeology to develop an easy-to-use system whereby they could manage the website themselves after it was operational. It would have a simple, clean design and be mobile-friendly, as well as providing technical metadata links to ensure compatibility with search facilities such as Google Scholar.
Archaeovision delivered the project using the WordPress content management system, tailoring it to the requirements of EAA through the use of custom content types. As well as adding a new page or a post, we were able to add a “monograph” item where it is simple to add the bibliographical information for each book. This is then formatted automatically and each publication slots into the correct section on the website. We used bright ‘tags’ in the design to facilitate discovery of other related items on the site, inviting the user to explore.
