How to Link KeEmu to TRIM documents

How to Link KeEmu to TRIM documents

Hi,
Has anyone had issues with putting links to TRIM documents in KeEmu?
If so, were you successful in adding the links in KeEmu & how did you do it? Did your IT Dept have to adjust the security access/ permission(s) of the user i.e. the CMS administrator to allow them access?My IT Department and our Archives Department & I have tried to add links from TRIM in to KeEmu via my login but weren't able to.

Our records person tried to logon to my PC, and then logon to KeEmu with no success to see if it was a rights issue.

Am interested in solutions and suggestions.

Thanks.
Regards,
Lilian

Hi Lilian,
EMu has the ability to store non-file resources like URL addresses, so if you are able to access TRIM documents via their URL ordinarily, then you can store the URL in EMu's Multimedia Repository.  Having worked with TRIM in my previous position at Museum Victoria, I think you need to be running TRIM desktop for this to be possible. 

To see if it is a TRIM access issue, you could try accessing the TRIM URL via your browser - if you can't access the TRIM document this way, then you won't be able to access it via EMu either.

thanks,
Donna

Re: How to Link KeEmu to TRIM documents

Hi Donna,
Well, that's not good! TRIM is a crucial record management system which a lot of government collecting institutions utilise to manage their paper documentation. In order for KeEmu to remain relevant it needs to connect to TRIM. We don't seem to be getting anyway with assistance on this ...:(
very frustrating.

Hello Lilian,
We have started to use TRIM to dreduce duplication of records and effort and it does work!
I have attached a copy of our how to document to provide you with the steps we take.
Let me know if you need more information? I can follow up the technical side of things if you like.

Hi Lilian,
Nancy from Museum Victoria will be able to assist you to troubleshoot your TRIM settings to sort out your browser access to your TRIM documents (thanks Nancy!).  I've seen (and been a part) of this process at MV and it works nicely.

Once you are able to access your TRIM documents via their URL, you should have no problems adding the resource to EMu.  If you do though, we would be very happy to assist you further via the EMu support queue.

cheers,
Donna
