If by "ArchivesSpace website," you are not refereeing to your own instance, you can download the template you need directly in ASpace depending on the version you are using. I think, and someone can correct me if I am wrong, they are available to download since v3.0 or 3.1. Go to the gear image on the right and there should be a Bulk Import Template option. Click on that and it will open a page with several options. Just read the descriptions.

Hope that helps

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Question about bulk import of Digital objects



I would like to bulk import numerous Digital Objects into an archival object record.  I am confused on the AS website as far as which template/map to use, as there are so many versions?  This would be a simple DO import into an Archival Object record, including the DO Title, Identifier, DO Type, File URI, Use Statement, File Format Name, Caption, Date Label, Date Type, Begin (see attached example).  I have hundreds of PDFs to add in which the corresponding DO would be constructed with this same metadata, but want to make sure I'm using the correct spreadsheet and process.   We're using AS version 3.1.0 (according to our front-end data).

Thank you in advance for your assistance,
