SUMMARY

This module allows you to use the MODS record of another fedora object as a template or 'seed' in the creation/ingest process of a new Fedora Object.

REQUIREMENTS

The XML Forms Module (https://github.com/islandora/islandora_xml_forms)

INSTALLATION

Enable the module.

USAGE

If you go to a record with a valid MODS datastream (and MODS form), you will get a menu task to 'Clone/Seed Template'. Click the link to get an ingest form that is pre-filled with the mods data from the record you clicked from.

CONFIGURATION

You can configure which elements of the form/record do not get added to the seed process at /admin/islandora/islandora-record-template-seed.

FAQ

Q: Why? This seems awfully similar to the template documents that can be used to prepopulate MODS forms on ingest.

A: Sometimes, it is easier to use a record that may be just been entered as the foundation to prepopulate the MODS form (for example, say we have a collection of images that are similar in the photographer, location, etc but different in context like the notes, subject chains).

Q: Why such a terrible module name?

A: I am terrible at naming projects :(

Q: Where are the tests?

A: Another thing I am somewhat terrible at. It will be a work in progress.
