Why Use Multi-importer

  • UI driven integrated workflow for ingest and update
  • Metadata Cleanup: Export your MODS metadata as CSV via Solr, clean up, then update the MODS datastream of the objects by recreating the MODS datastream using Twig
  • To ingest different content types at the same time including hierarchies, like collections inside collections with compounds and books, etc
  • To avoid having to follow strict naming conventions and folder structure dictated by many Islandora batch ingest processes
  • Selectively choose which derivatives you want to create and upload
  • To avoid the OpenRefine/XSLT approach to creating MODS from CSVs
  • To take advantage of the Twig Templating system for creating MODS from CSVs
  • To preview the MODS output easily
  • Supports integration with Google Spreadsheets, Zip/Local/Amazon storage and Complex storage needs via hooks.

Updating existing Objects

  • To enable this functionality without any warnings you need to use instead of main Islandora Batch release. We are working on making those changes into the main release.
  • Objects (PIDs) present in other Batch Sets won't be able to be updated because Islandora Batch only allows a single PID to exist in its DB. We are working on fixing that inside 7.x-ISLANDORA-2046. For now, please delete old batch sets if you plan on updating existing Objects that were ingested using Islandora Batch.
