Each type of XML we use in Acumen must have XSLT files for two different things: display and indexing. Here we talk about display.
There's a different XSL file for each type of metadata:
- mods.xsl for MODS
- ead.xsl for EAD
- collection.xsl for collection xml files
If you add a new type of metadata, you'll need to provide an xsl for display.
The XSLT that transforms our XML metadata into a nice display resides in the assets/xsl subdirectories within acumen-old (live), acumen-old/staging, and acumen-old/dev in /srv/www/htdocs/.
- When you need to modify something, first test on your desktop with XMLspy.
- THEN copy to the staging directory, after backing up the previous version of the file (/srv/www/htdocs/acumen-old/staging/assets/xsl/)
- View it in staging: http://acumen.lib.ua.edu/staging/ and modify if necessary
- Once it looks good, copy the new file to live: /srv/www/htdocs/acumen-old/assets/xsl/
- Check the live version to make sure it's good: http://acumen.lib.ua.edu/
NOTE: the oai XSL in these directories are not currently in use. For OAI, look in the LEGACY directory: /srv/www/htdocs/acumen-old/legacy/mv/vendors/. There is a separate XSL file for each type of metadata and for each target audience there. The mets and collection and tags and ead xsl are not in use at this time.
