Batch Ingest into DSPACE based on EXCEL

Introduction

Below is a procedure for ingesting data into DSPACE based on excel. Basically the user inputs a zip file that has an excel file with the metadata in it and also a subdirectory with the assets. This is converted into subdirectories with dc xml and the corresponding asset, that can be consumed by the DSPACE ingest system. Finally a perl script calls the ItemIngest class and all the metadata and assets are ingested. ExcelBatchIngest.jpg
