Newspaper Content Model

 

 

In order to ingest newspapers you need to enable the content models in the collection policy of the collection object where the newspapers will reside:

  • Islandora Newspaper Content Model

  • Islandora Newspaper Issue Content Model

  • Islandora Newspaper Page Content Model

See the Collection Policy Guide for information to learn how to enable content models.

 


Adding a Newspaper Object

  • Log in to manage.ctdigitalarchive.org. 

  • Find the collection to which you will upload the newspaper.

  • Click the "Manage" tab.

  • Select "Add an object to this Collection".

     

  • Select "Islandora Basic Image Content Model" from the "Select a Content Model to Ingest" dropdown menu and click "Next".

     

  • Choose 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 newspaper.

     

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

     

  • The final required field is the "Rights" field. Choose your institution from the dropdown menu. If you do not have a customized rights statement, select "Creative Commons NC-BY".

Adding Newspapers 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.

Newspaper title objects can be added by downloading the Newspaper Template from the Spreadsheet Template page.

Adding Newspaper Issues to a Newspaper Title

Download the Newspaper Template from the Spreadsheet Template page.

Enter your metadata into the template. Refer to the Spreadsheet Metadata Guide for information about the columns in the spreadsheet.

Spreadsheet Specifications for Newspaper Issues

In the "parent_object" column, enter the PID of the newspaper object to which you are adding the newspaper issues.

In the "isSequenceNumber" column, enter the sequence number of the issue as it appears in the newspaper listing.

In the "dateIssued" column, enter the date the issue was published in the YYYY-MM-DD format.

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

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

Adding Newspaper Pages to Issues

Newspaper Pages can be added by downloading the Page Template located on the Spreadsheet Template page.

Spreadsheet Specifications for Newspaper Pages

In the "isPageOf" and the "parent_object" columns, enter the PID of the newspaper issue to which you are adding the newspaper 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 as it should appear in the issue.

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

 

Issues and Pages cannot be added in the same spreadsheet template. Users need to ingest the newspaper issues first and then add the pages to those issues.

 

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


Managing Newspapers

Deleting an Issue

  • Click the checkbox next to the "PID" label to select all of the pages in the issue.

     

  • Click "Delete Selected Pages".
