The BatchDO2.1 plugin automates the workflow for the creation and linking of digital objects to resource components, and transfers barcodes placed in the "Instance Type" field into the "Barcode Field". Though tailored to NYU's infrastructure, most of the functionality can be used by other institutions. Using this plugin, institutions can quickly go from the digitization, creation of digital objects, and publication in much shorter period of time.
See the README file (pdf format) for more details.

They described the development and implementation of a plug-in used at NYU for digital object workflow management. http://archiviststoolkit.org/node/272
