System requirements

 

SEBLib can be installed as a Sandbox solution on all versions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 (Standard, Enterprise and Foundation).

 

Test / evaluation environment

 

To speed up evaluation process you can create a trial SharePoint online account at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/free-office365-trial.aspx or download a “2010 Information Worker Demonstration and Evaluation Virtual Machine (SP1)” from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=27417 (you need only Virtual machine “a”. You’ll need to import the VM to Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, so that the network adapter settings will remain the same. After import you can add additional network adapter so you can copy files to this machine).

 

Install SEBLib and create a new Site

 

Before installing SEBLib it is advised that you update your SharePoint environment with the latest updates / service packs.

The following steps will help you to successfully install SEBLib digital library.

You can also check the http://seblib.com/WebUI/SEBLib2Pages/Videos.aspx for more detailed instructions.

 

1.    Download SEBLib installation files and licenses

 

Register at http://seblib.com and download:

·         VBI.SEBLib2010.wsp

·         License files (trial / prod)

·         SEBLibImport.zip (optional for import of existing data or demo data)

 

2.    Upload and activate solution

 

If you are running SharePoint in your local environment make sure “Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Sandboxed Code Service” is running in your central administration. If it is stopped, start it. (Otherwise you will not be able to activate sandbox solution.)

SEBLib is always installed as a sandbox solution, even in farm environments.

Navigate to your root site and open “Solutions page” (Site actions->Site settings -> Solutions). Upload VBI.SEBLib2010.wsp file and activate it.

Solution activation will automatically activate hidden site collection features:

·         SEBLib 2.0 Web Parts”

·         SEBLib 2.0 Web Template”

Known issues: If you get a timeout error during solution activation, please wait a few seconds and try to activate it again.

3.    Create a SEBLib site

 

Navigate to “Site actions” and select “New Site”. Select “Browse All” tab and choose “SEBLib digital library 2.0” template. Enter title, URL and press “Create” button.

 

4.    Add SEBLib licenses

 

Click on SEBLib home icon located under Site actions to navigate to Library home. Select Library settings in the left menu. When settings are displayed click button »Edit licenses«.

Paste content from your license file into the text box under label »Add license string« and click button »Add license«.

 

5.    Assign users and permissions

 

Create separate user groups for each SEBLib role (Librarian, Member, and Visitor) and assign them Contribute permission. Then then add users to those groups. For example:

·         SEBLibLibrarians

·         SEBLibMembers

·         SEBLibVisitors

Important: In SEBLib all users can have »Contribute permissions« on SEBLib lists, since their actual SEBLib permissions are defined by custom logic (using event receivers, User roles and User role assignments lists).

 

When you have your groups created, navigate to Library management in SEBLib menu on the right and select SEBLib user roles.

Add one role assignment for each group you created:

·         Click add new item, select role »SEBLib librarians«, enter user group »SEBLibLibrarians« and save.

·         Click add new item, select role »SEBLib members«, enter user group »SEBLibMembers« and save.

·         Click add new item, select role »SEBLib visitors«, enter user group »SEBLibVisitors« and save.

 

6.    Enable search by ISBN

 

SEBLib implements search of books by ISBN and import of metadata (titles, authors, summary, cover images, etc.) into SEBLib by using 3rd party services.

In your browser open http://SEBLib.com and login.

1.    Navigate to “My account” and then select “My metadata accounts.”

2.    Click on button “Add new  metadata accounts”

3.    Select a provider from drop down list

4.    In separate browser window navigate to selected provider registration page and create an account and copy your access key.

5.    Return to your SEBLib and paste your access key.

6.    Save

7.    To test your settings go to your SharePoint SEBLib installation and Navigate to “Library management” and click “New material”. Enter a valid ISBN and click button “Get data by ISBN”. If data is retrieved your setup is competed.

This step is also demonstrated inside “SEBLib data import from Excel, csv and metadata retrieval” video at http://seblib.com/WebUI/SEBLib2Pages/Videos.aspx.

 

7.    Import existing data or demo data (optional)

If you already have an existing book catalogue in Excel, SharePoint 2007 Lending Library or a text file export from 3rd party application, you can import it using SEBLib import wizard. For more details see SEBLibImportGuide.pdf and “SEBLib Demo data import” video and “SEBLib data import from Excel, csv and metadata retrieval” video at http://seblib.com/WebUI/SEBLib2Pages/Videos.aspx.

8.    Installation completed

In “Site actions” select “Site settings”. If you are not at the root click “Go to top level site settings”.

Click “Solutions” and deactivate “VBI.SEBLib2010” solution.

Upload VBI.SEBLib2010.wsp solution to SharePoint and activate it.

Solution activation will automatically activate hidden site collection features:

Go to your SEBLib site. In “Site actions” select “Site settings”. Click on “Manage site features” and “activate SEBLib 2.0 Web Upgrade” feature. This will replace existing files (scripts, pages, etc.) with new versions.

Old files are moved as backup to “Upgrade” subfolder e.g. »SEBLib/Scripts/SEBLibCommon.js« is moved to »SEBLib/Scripts/Upgrade_2_0_2/SEBLibCommon_bkp.js«. Later you can merge your own changes into the new version.

 

At the end activate “SEBLib 2.0 Event Receivers” feature to enable SEBLib permissions checking.

Repeat this for each site created from SEBLib template.
