Batch ingest allows Avalon users with access to upload multiple items at once by placing media files and accompanying files (like transcripts) in a specified dropbox location and filling out a spreadsheet of associated metadata. The Batch Ingest Package Format provides details of how to package a batch for ingest, including details of how to fill out a batch spreadsheet for successful ingest. A template spreadsheet (batch_manifest_template.xlsx) is provided to make it easier to create a package for batch ingest. Please note that the column names in the batch ingest spreadsheet vary slightly from the field labels used in the Resource Description Form step for a single Avalon item, even though the MODS XML produced is the same. See [Supported Field Names] for  for a complete list of column names available in the batch spreadsheet and how descriptive metadata fields map to the MODS XML stored for an Avalon item.
