Overview

The Book Solution pack creates a Book Collection object consisting of a MODS metadata records. After the Book Collection object is created, users can upload a zipped directory of uncompressed tiffs. These tiffs become Page objects that are members of the Book Collection Object. Page objects undergo an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) process, making their contents full-text searchable. You can use the Book module to create any paged content consisting of tiff images of pages.

While books for Islandora 6 and 7 can exist in the same repository, books ingested through Islandora 6 will not display properly in Islandora 7. A migration script is required.

Configuring the Book Solution Pack

After you have activated and installed the Book Solution Pack, you may choose whether or not to use local services to create page image derivatives (Kakadu/Djatoka) and whether or not to use local services to perform Optical Character Recognition (OCR) on your ingested, uncompressed .tiff images.

If you wish to use microservices to perform OCR services using an external service, you will want to deselect these features.

Once you have activated and installed the book solution pack, you can navigate to administer> Islandora Book Admin (under “Site Configuration). You will be presented with the following screen:


 
If you wish to use external services for image derivation and OCR, deselect these boxes. You will need to make sure that the path to your version of tesseract (that has been installed in the same server) is identified in “Path to OCR executable.” A green check mark will appear to indicate that the system has discovered the tesseract directory.
