Special Collections cataloger at Tisch Library; opinions my own.
Just batch ingested 43 digital objects from the internet archive via an XSLT and templates (one to normalize MARCXML, the other to produce a file name) into production MIRA/Fedora and published to the Tufts Digital Library. Only hiccup is on the DL side in that the reader seems to be offline. (We put in a ticket and expect it to be fixed shortly.) As soon as the reader comes back online I’ll post a link to a sample object. The cool thing is we can start talking about scale of processing hundreds of records at a time, and for the first time Tisch Library is now a producing metadata department in the Fedora environment. Its been two years in the making, and as of today we have arrived.
(Also, that is why there have been no pictures this week. Next I promise I will make up for it with some newly acquired items!)
