In 2020 we started work with the Wiener Holocaust Library. Based in Russell Square in London, the library is dedicated to the support of research, learning, teaching and advocacy about the Holocaust and genocide.

As with most projects, we spent a fair amount of time workshopping with the WHL team and got to understand their needs before embarking on the website build.

The site is a WordPress build and features custom functionality around events and exhibitions. There is also an online “collection highlights” section which has our CultureObject plugin running under the hood; we also built a custom plugin which integrates with the Soutron (library catalogue) API. This returns catalogue results next to the normal “on-site” search results.

Once again, we’ve been using Elastic Search to facilitate the search on the site. We’re increasingly impressed with what this amazing tool can do – not only is it blisteringly fast and accurate, but we’ve also been working on a custom ES plugin which will help us build faceted searches in the future.

Thirty8 Digital stood out from the crowd from our first meeting and have not disappointed since. What makes them different is the way they combine insight, honesty and flexibility. You only get that from companies that really care about the work that they do and their clients. We redesigned our main website from top to bottom in 2020 with Mike and Rachel. All of the best projects are fun, creative, impactful, on time and on budget! We got all of these things and we look forward to a long working relationship that will bring lasting benefits to our diverse users and stakeholders.
