  1. After your spreadsheet is finished, the subjects are all tagged, and the names (except in description and title) all have database numbers,
  2. Use ExcelConverter (S:\Digital Projects\Administrative\scripts\ExcelConverter\ExcelConverter.pl) to export a tab-delimited UTF8 (without Byte Order Mark) file into the collection Metadata directory.
  3. Create a MODS directory within the Metadata directory.
  4. Click on makeMods.pl (S:\Digital Projects\Administrative\scripts\Metadata\makeMods\makeMods.pl) and navigate to your spreadsheet
  5. When the script has finished, look in your Metadata directory for any errors file that may have been generated.
  6. If found, repair the errors, and go back to step 1.
  7. If not found, there should now be MODS in the MODS directory, and a manifest.xml file listing those MODS in the Metadata directory. Go forth and validate!
