MAA catalogue search

http://maa.cam.ac.uk/maa/category/collections-2/catalogue/

The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology has a digital record of several hundred thousand of the items in its physical collection. These needed to be made available to visitors via a free-text search. In addition, a facility to create collections of related records for display on a web page, along with a visitor comments system were required.

The solution uses an elasticsearch powered index to provide fast text search, and a web interface written using CodeIgniter / MySQL.
