Add an Item

When adding a file into the project spreadsheet, the original file remains in its existing location. A copy is added to the project spreadsheet so you can enter metadata and prepare the item to upload to the server for approval. Special considerations should be given when importing finding aids and PDF files.

To add an individual file:

  1. Navigate to the Home tab or Project tab.

  2. On the left task pane under Common Tasks, click Add Item. The Add Item wizard opens.

  3. Specify or browse to the file you want to add.

    Tip: If you want to add more than one item, press Ctrl and click on the individual files to add.

  4. Select whether to create a display image.

  5. Click Add. A progress screen displays as the item is processed. When complete, a summary screen displays the summary and any errors or warnings.

  6. Click Close. The item is displayed in the project spreadsheet.

    Note: The original file remains in its current location. A copy is added to the project spreadsheet.
