Kitodo.Presentation is the presentation module in the Kitodo suite. It can be used to display digitised books, newspapers, journals, manuscripts, printed music, single-sheet media, and document collections.
Kitodo.Presentation is implemented as an extension for the open-source content management system TYPO3 and integrates seamlessly in editorially maintained websites. TYPO3 functions such as user authentication, session handling, language localisation, caching, etc. are also fully available within the Kitodo.Presentation function modules. The entire system is multi-client capable, i.e. any number of instances of Kitodo.Presentation can be operated within a single TYPO3 installation, each of them with a separate configuration, search index, database, access rights, visual design etc.
Kitodo.Presentation offers a standards-compliant OAI2 interface for international searching and readability of digital metadata. We recommend that you register your Kitodo installation with the relevant public OAI registries.
Digital collections with Kitodo.Presentation are not obliged to use the METS/MODS format. With appropriate configuration, you can use any METS-based format, e.g. METS/TEI for manuscripts.
