Business in the Front, Party in the Back: Revising Metadata Processes Up-Front to Benefit Back-End Workflows

Session Description

When faced with the prospect of manually uploading thousands of collection objects into our digital repository, we created a workflow that allows us to take a metadata spreadsheet containing thousands of rows and transform it into a series of MODS XML files, using OpenRefine’s templating tool. Each one of the tools in this presentation can be modified by an institution to enhance their existing workflows.
