Introduction

Made primarily for ingesting objects described by MODS and DC, and currently imports ZIP files.

Requirements

This module requires the following modules/libraries:


Additional Modules Installed

  • Zip Importer, a sub-module included in the Importer module. When you download the main module, it comes with it.

Usage

More information on how to use the Batch Importer module can be found in the section How to Batch Ingest Files.

XML Form Builder forms are not used when batch ingesting via the ZIP importer. Importer looks for metadata XML files and runs XSLTs as required. The module currently supports metadata in MODS, MARCXML, Dublin Core, and Darwin Core formats.
To batch import metadata records using other schemas you can do so using the Islandora Batch module, which will allow the creation of any datastreams you like. However, this module does not yet have a user interface within Islandora and must be accessed via Drush on the command line. Instructions are in the README.

Installation

Install as usual, see this for further information.

Configuration

Select whether or not to 'Use filename as Datastream label' in Administration » Islandora » Islandora Utility Modules » Zip Importer (admin/islandora/tools/zipimporter).

Configuration

Troubleshooting/Issues

The zip importer is unstable with large files (~2GB). Consider alternative methods such as unzipping your Zip file and using Islandora Batch's `--directory` option.

FAQ

Q. How does Importer interact with XACML POLICY datstreams?

A. It doesn't. A POLICY datastream will not be applied to objects ingested via Zip File Importer on ingest, even if the policy of the parent collection is set to apply to all new objects ingested into the collection. You can retroactively apply a policy to objects imported via Zip File Importer by updating the policy on the parent collection and telling it to apply to "all children of this collection."
