Published on

The EHRI Metadata Publishing Tool gives the opportunity to archives, libraries, museums and memorials institutions to publish their EAD-files in a sustainable way. The tool is based on the ResourceSync Framework Specification so that EHRI can harvest the resources (in EHRI’s case EAD files) and integrate them into the EHRI portal

Intro EHRI Metadata Publishing Tool

  1. 1. EHRI Metadata Publishing Tool (MPT) Developed for EHRI WP 10 by DANS- KNAW CONNECTING COLLECTIONS 12/11/2017 This work is licensed under the Creative Commons CC-BY 4.0 licence
  2. 2. 14 Overview The MPT is a desktop application that facilitates the publishing of resources and sitemaps in conformance with the ResourceSync Framework Specification. This introduction slideset contains: ResourceSync, EHRI and the MPT How to download and install the MPT How to use the MPT Usefull links
  3. 3. ResourceSync Synchronizing resources over the web with the aid of published xml-documents (sitemaps) that describe the resources and their changes over time
  4. 4. ResourceSync utilized by EHRI External logistics. The ResourceSync Framework Specification at work. Collection Holding Institutions (CHI) expose content and ResourceSync metadata on their web servers. The central hub (in this case the EHRI Portal) is actively collecting resources and keeping them in sync with the aid of published sitemaps. The content exposed by the various CHI’s are ead-files, Encoded Archival Descriptions.
  5. 5. The purpose of MPT Internal logistics. MPT assisting in transport and selection of resources, creating sitemap documents and exposing them on the web server of the CHI.
  6. 6. Download and install MPT https://github.com/EHRI/rspub-gui/releases Installation wizards for Windows and MacOs Download from the releases page of the GitHub project: Follow the instructions of the wizard
  7. 7. The MPT wizard screens MPT consists of several tabs or wizard screens that will help you through the process of publishing your ead-files and sitemap documents The steps you have to take are: •Configure •Import •Select •Execute •Export •Audit Not all steps have to be taken by everyone and not all steps have to be taken each time you synchronize your resources
  8. 8. Configure MPT Configuration •Needs to be done once •Is best done by a technician Different configurations can be saved and loaded
  9. 9. Import resources Import ead-files from the archival system Skip this step if your ead-files are already on the local or networked drive where MPT can see them and work with them Configuration of the Import wizard •Needs to be done once •Is best done by a technician
  10. 10. Import resources Import ead-files from the archival system Skip this step if your ead-files are already on the local or networked drive where MPT can see them and work with them Configuration of the Import wizard •Needs to be done once •Is best done by a technician Once configuration is done, all you need to do is press the start button
  11. 11. Select resources Select ead-files that are fit for synchronization Use a simple or advanced selection Advanced selection gives more control on files and folders that need to be included in - or excluded from the synchronization
  12. 12. Execute a synchronization Gives an overview of the current configuration details
  13. 13. Execute a synchronization Gives an overview of the current configuration details If everything is fine, press the run button to start a synchronization
  14. 14. Export resources and sitemaps Enables the export of newly synchronized files to the web server of the CHI Configuration •Needs to be done once •Is best done by a technician
  15. 15. Export resources and sitemaps Enables the export of newly synchronized files to the web server of the CHI Configuration •Needs to be done once •Is best done by a technician Once configuration is done, all you need to do is press the start button
  16. 16. Audit Verify that the exposed URL’s on your web server are correct and your ResourceSync site ready to be harvested by the EHRI-portal Press the start button to start the audit process
  17. 17. Audit Verify that the exposed URL’s on your web server are correct and your ResourceSync site ready to be harvested by the EHRI-portal Press the start button to start the audit process After audit has run, a detailed report on the correctness of your ResourceSync site is exposed
