dspace batch ingest

Format of files to ingest

Here is a breakdown of the files : batch_files - top level directory (name does not matter)
   Ingest1   - This a prototype for the directories that you will create.  Give these directories any name you want
         contents                                            -    contains  the asset name.  The fields are separated by a single tab.  File must  be called "contents"
        dublin_core.xml                                - contains the DC metadata.  This file must be called "dublin_core.xml" 
        UDCsubmissionguidelines.pdf     - This is the asset.  You may use whatever name you want.  However the name of the
                                                                       asset must appear in the "contents" file.

tarball that gives working sample of the directory structure.
