Add URL

You can display Web pages or link to streaming media servers by adding URLs. By adding URLs that point to items on streaming media servers, you can reliably deliver historical interviews, lectures, and other lengthy audio and video files over the Internet.

You also can use the Add URL interface to create a metadata record with no associated digital file (a “null item”). This can be useful if you have metadata records for items that are not yet digitized. Once the items are digitized, you can use the replace functionality to add the digital file to the record.

For information about adding multiple URLs using a tab-delimited text file, see Importing Multiple Files with Tab-Delimited Text.
