The Brief

1 Year
Business Model

Our client, a leading digital library curator, sought to spearhead the renaissance of Jewish culture online by developing an innovative platform tailored specifically to students, archaeologists, and researchers interested in Jewish culture. Their vision included creating an online Jewish library website that would serve as a comprehensive repository of Jewish books and resources, accessible to a global audience. 

To achieve this ambitious goal, the client envisioned leveraging website development in Drupal to create a dynamic and user-friendly platform. Key objectives encompassed modernizing the design, ensuring mobile responsiveness, and integrating advanced search features to enhance the accessibility and relevance of Jewish digital library.

The Challenge

Several challenges loomed over the project. The existing platform suffered from outdated design elements, particularly concerning mobile responsiveness, leading to suboptimal user engagement. Migrating vast amounts of digital book data from XML to Drupal posed complexities in preserving data integrity and structure. Furthermore, implementing user and admin login functionalities securely while ensuring smooth access for authorized users presented a delicate balance between security and usability. An integrating Apache Solr for advanced search capabilities required meticulous configuration to ensure optimal performance and accuracy.

  1. Modernization of Design: The existing platform lacked modern design elements and was not optimized for mobile devices, leading to a subpar user experience and reduced engagement.
  2. Content Migration Complexity: Migrating extensive digital book data from XML format to Drupal while preserving data integrity and structure posed a significant challenge due to the complexity and volume of data.
  3. User Access and Security: Implementing secure user and admin login functionalities to control access to restricted content while ensuring ease of access for authorized users presented a delicate balance between security and usability.
  4. Integration of Advanced Search: Configuring Apache Solr for advanced search functionalities required expert handling to ensure optimal performance and accuracy, especially considering the vast amount of content to be indexed.

The Solution

To address these challenges effectively, we implemented a strategic approach. For modernizing design, we collaborated closely with designers to create visually appealing and responsive layouts using Acquia Site Studio. Streamlining content migration involved meticulous data analysis and the development of custom migration scripts leveraging Drupal’s Migration API. Secure user access was achieved by implementing robust authentication mechanisms and configuring role-based permissions within Drupal. Integration of Apache Solr for advanced search functionalities required expert configuration to optimize search performance and accuracy.
