WEKO: A New Repository System as a Function of Content Management System
MetadataShow full item record
Content management systems (CMS) such as Drupal, Joomla, and Plone enable users to construct web communities that make available many useful functionalities to their users. In most CMS systems, website functionalities are embodied as modules separate from the core system and installed as the need arises. The National Institute of Informatics in Japan has developed an AJAX-oriented CMS called NetCommons (NC) which is being used by educators. This study proposes a repository module for NC. The name "WEKO" comes from Swahili and means "repository" in that language.
