AT digital object metadata import: tab-delimited file "template"
The attached document comprises an Excel file, which can serve as a "template" and reference for formatting digital object metadata, for importing into the AT:
- The first tab comprises the template -- the column headers map to the internal AT data model. You can use this as a target, for formatting your metadata for import. Retain the first row of data, which the AT needs for mapping the data on import. You'll need to ultimately save the file as a tab-delimited TXT file, for importing.
- The second and third tabs comprise examples of formatting metadata for A) simple objects and B) compound objects, respectively.
A. In the case of simple objects, each row reflects metadata for a given simple object -- note that Column B should indicate "FALSE" for each record, given that the simple object won't have components.
B. In the case of complex objects, use Column B to indicate "TRUE" for component-level metadata for a given record.
