Catalog integration

Out-of-the-box catalog integration

Synchronize your catalog with Preservica

Seamlessly link Preservica with your catalog

Preservica synchronizes and shares metadata between systems to create a synchronized view of your archival objects. You can easily view content in Preservica by clicking through the link in your existing catalog system.

Out-of-the-box integrations are available for ArchivesSpace, Axiell CALM and Axiell Adlib. Preservica also offers an OAI-PMH API for metadata harvesting.

“The interoperability between Preservica and ArchivesSpace enables us to boost productivity and achieve more by eliminating the need to re-key descriptive metadata or manually recreate collection hierarchies.”

Sarah Pinard — University at Buffalo

How it works : ArchivesSpace example

Maintain a single catalog view

During the ingest of digital content for safekeeping in Preservica the catalog hierarchy and descriptive metadata is automatically recreated in Preservica. An easy to click link to the digital content in Preservica is also added to the catalog entry.

Automatically synchronize after ingest

Subsequent changes to the catalog hierarchy or metadata are also automatically synchronized to Preservica on an on-going basis, even after ingest. In addition, digital objects deleted from Preservica will be removed from the catalog entry.

Metadata and hierarchy mapping

The Preservica catalog integration comes with default metadata and hierarchy mapping. Preservica provides a service to help build other custom mappings.

Achieving more with catalog integration

Sarah Pinard, Processing Archivist at the State University at New York of Buffalo, discusses how Preservica has enabled the archive team to achieve more: providing faster discovery times for users and seamlessly integrating with ArchivesSpace.
