OUMC Open URL MetaData Converter v.0.9 This utility will take an export file from the SFX OpenURL resolver and create an input file suitable for ingestion into a III ERM product. This product will work with SFX V.3 Step 1. Unpack all files in a directory Step 2. Edit settings.py to reflect your SFX settings Step 3. Login to SFX Admin KBTools -> Export Tool Advanced Export Queries Select Output Format: TXT Submit It will take a while for the export file to build. When completed download and copy to the 'data_in' directory of OUMC and rename to 'sfx_export.txt' Step 4. Run resolve.py Depending on the amount of data this might take a really long time. For about 50,000 lines of input data this will take about 3-4 hours to run Step 5. Run finalize.py Your final file, ready to loading into the ERM catalogue using the ERM 'Coverage Load' feature will be in the data_done directory typically called finished_data.txt The software makes uses of a caching mechanism so it will be kinder on your SFX server as it will only make 1 unique SFX request per title.
