Program Description

Alma offers powerful digital inventory capabilities, but the interface is clunky bulk imports of large files -- particularly when multiple representations and complex permissions are involved.

Alma's rich API is a powerful tool for inventory management, but it's difficult for nonprogrammers to use. This session demonstrates a method to securely import thousands of large files and associated metadata in a single file copy operation.
