Book Page (multi-page document) structure for roundtrip
Digital heritage items composed of multiple book pages (multi-page documents) can be imported through roundtrip, the same as simple digital heritage items.
Book Page Structure
- Each book page is effectively a complete digital heritage item that the system connects to display as a book.
- Each book page can have nearly unique metadata from the other pages.
- Note that all pages must use the same Community, Protocol, and Item Sharing Settings.
- If the item is being added to a collection, only list the collection on the first page.
- Each book page has all the same required fields as a regular digital heritage item, and can use all the same optional fields.
- To arrange the pages in the digital heritage item spreadsheet, enter each page on it’s own row, in the order you want them to display (eg: top to bottom, first page to last page).
- In the Book Parent field, leave the first page blank. For all other pages, enter the GUID of the first page.
Book Page Metadata Fields
- This article only lists the minimum fields required to successfully create a digital heritage item with multiple book pages.
- For a complete list of digital heritage item fields, see Digital heritage metadata fields for roundtrip.
- An example of these fields is shown below.
- Each page needs a unique GUID or NID.
- When importing new items, use a GUID.
- When updating existing items, use a NID.
- Book Parent
- For the first page, leave this field blank.
- For all other pages, enter the GUID of the first page.
- Each page needs a title.
- Consider appending a page number to the end of the titles, if each page does not already have a unique title.
- Each page needs one or more categories.
- They can all be the same, or different pages can list different categories.
- Each page needs a community (NID).
- This must be the same on all pages – different pages cannot have different communities.
- Each page needs a protocol (NID).
- This must be the same on all pages – different pages cannot have different protocols.
- Item Sharing Settings
- Each page needs to list “any” or “all” for the item sharing settings.
- This must be the same on all pages – different pages cannot have different sharing settings.
- If the item is being added to a collection, only list the collection NID on the first page, leave blank for all other pages.
- Each page needs a username.
