- This page contains a link to a tutorial, saved as a Microsoft Word file.
- The tutorial covers the workflow that allows one to parse out metadata (from a metadata Excel file) for selected scans.
In other words, if one has an Excel spreadsheet file with metadata for an entire collection, one can use this tutorial to extract metadata for items within given Scans folders. This means as of 2010 July this tutorial and the accompanying script do not apply to metadata and scans for the Rohlig Audio Collection as the metadata for this collection is made per item by Digital Serviced from other sources and because of filenaming differences for audio collections vs. image collections. Therefore, in order to parse out metadata for items for this collection ready for storage/delivery, one must parse out the metadata "by hand".
- The tutorial calls for the use of a Python script.
