Hello Valerie,

At UNLV we have many accessions that need to get spawned into resources. We
created a kind of batch spawn plugin. It auto-fills those cookie-cutter
fields such as the notes and finding aids. It is still under developement,
but you can download it at test it out from:


Some of the changes fields populated are local to the UNLV Special
Collections, but if you look under the spawn/frontend/plugin_init.rb file
it alters the populate_from_accession function. and there should be some
comments to get you started on choosing what changes you'd like to

If you have any questions, let me know.

Good Luck,
