Thanks so much for sharing!

Hey Liz Neely, we have done just this type of thing with collection data from several institutions over the past 5 years or so and I thought you might be interested.

At Cogapp we’ve been using Solr rather than ElasticSearch as it wasn’t around at the time we started doing this but we’ve learned a lot that is applicable to ElasticSearch.

Project’s that might be of interest to you include the Met’s website (recently reskinned but the plumbing is the same I believe), the Qatar Digital Library ( as well as our work for the Yiddish Book Center (

Anyway, happy to chat if it’s something that you are interested in. See you in Cleveland :-)

Like what you read? Give Andy Cummins a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
