Brief overview of the ‘Goobi Administration’ course
The ‘Goobi Administration’ course is aimed at system administrators and others with a more detailed technical knowledge of Goobi and its infrastructure. If focuses on administrative topics, including individual configurations, metadata mapping and server-based scripts. A large part of the course is devoted to special configurations and modifications, and you will therefore need to work with a Linux terminal. Given the highly specialised nature of the course, participants will need a strong technical background and in-depth knowledge of how Goobi works.
The selected course topics are based on our experience of working with Goobi for over ten years, as well as the feedback we have received from more than forty establishments where the program is in everyday use for a wide variety of projects. Nevertheless, the list of topics can always be adapted to meet individual requirements, and we can even incorporate your own materials and working methods.
The ‘Goobi Administration’ course generally covers the following topics in detail:
Accessing Goobi through a console
Goobi’s directory structure
Metadata and mappings
