For ArchivesSpace users that do not use the ArchivesSpace public UI, integration helps them to publish finding aids or other descriptive data to external systems. A number of content publication integrations already exist.
Using ArchivesSpace as the master metadata for your archives, Aviary can provide a synchronized access point for audiovisual content in your collections.
Aviary maps metadata from ArchivesSpace and follows digital object version links to construct accessible digital objects for your users to interact with your collections. Aviary completes the process by creating a new digital object in ArchivesSpace so your users can navigate between Aviary and ArchivesSpace with ease.
Aviary subscribers can customize the integration with AVP to ensure the process meets their internal and external needs.
Documentation & Support
Supports ArchivesSpace 2.4.1 through current 2.7.1.
As organizations who use ASpace request new integrations with Aviary, Aviary will try to develop shared services across all Aviary->ASpace integrations so that it is easier to on ramp new integrations in the future.
AVP offers 24-hour support for Aviary subscribers. Any bugs or system-related issues are resolved as soon as possible. AVP will provide updates to ASpace and Aviary integrations based on changes to ASpace or Aviary platforms.
There are currently four Aviary->ASpace integrations in production, and one in development with five different organizations.
The integration is a custom integration that is implemented by AVP with guidance from the requesting organization. The integration is custom currently because every group uses ASpace intellectual objects and metadata differently, so there is usually some custom mapping to be done to ensure that the correct ASpace AOs and DOs are mapped to create Aviary resources as desired by the organization.
The integration is developed as a synchronization where Aviary is asked to pull metadata and links to digital content from ASpace based on AO identifiers. These create one-to-one relationships between Aviary Resources and ASpace AOs. Aviary can be asked to resync at any time. Aviary uses the ASpace API to gather the requested metadata and links to digital content.
