Development Suggestion: user access to documen

Postby PatReynolds » Thu Dec 04, 2014 9:15 pm

The Tolkien Society is looking at how we can better curate our digital material, including how to make it accessible.

With images, the answer is easy (low-res versions, via ehive).

For other formats (e.g. rtf documents, pdf), it would be great to have a way to make them available via ehive. They would be stored on our server, but accessed via their ehive records.

With best wishes,

Pat
Hon. Archivist, The Tolkien Society

Hi Pat,
If the files already exist on another site, then you can reference this in the public description field. This help topic gives the example of audio or video files, but the concept works for any web link: http://help.ehive.com/index.htm#Linking-to-other-websites-audio-and-media-files

Regards,
Paul
