Book Content Model

 

 

In order to ingest books, you need to enable the Content Models in the collection policy of the collection object where the book will reside:

  • Islandora Internet Archive Book Content Model

  • Islandora Page Content Model

See the Choosing Content Models Guide for information about enabling Content Models.

 




Setting up the Internet Archive (IA) Book Viewer

  • Select the MODS form you wish to use.

     

  • You will be taken to the CTDA MODS form. 


     

  • The first required field you need to populate is the title of your book.

  • The next required field is the "Resource Type", which should be "text".

  • The third required field in the form is "Digital Origin". You should leave "reformatted digital" in this field.

  • The fourth required field is the "Held By" field. Select your institution from the dropdown menu.

Adding Multiple Zip Files to a Book

  • Click "Add Zipped Pages".

Adding Books Using the Spreadsheet Ingest Module

Users can now add newspapers to the repository by using the spreadsheet ingest module.

Please review the steps you need to take to connect to the CTDA network and servers prior to using the module.

Book objects can be added using the Standard Template or the Linked Data Template.

Spreadsheet Specifications for Book Pages

In the "isPageOf" and the "parent_object" columns, enter the PID of the book to which you are adding the book pages.

In the "parent_predicate" column, select "isMemberOf" from the dropdown list.

In the "isPageNumber" and "isSequenceNumber" columns, enter the page number of each page image in the order you want them to appear in the book.

In the "cmodel" column, select "islandora:pageCModel" from the dropdown list.

 

After you have filled out the appropriate columns in your spreadsheet, return to the Ingest Workflow guide to continue the spreadsheet ingest process.
