Abstract

Need a quick user interface/API for your catalogue data? Maybe one for the OAI data you harvested? Maybe the two together, plus a bunch of other disparate data sets? Roll it all into CouchDB (a NoSQL database), and index it all with Elasticsearch (with a full API, no less). Throw it into an available jQuery and Twitter Bootstrap template, and you have a full, responsive site to use as a production interface, a ‘shadow catalogue,’ a development site, whatever… Using freely available scripts and tools, the whole thing can be ready in minutes.
