Summary

Loading digital objects into the database can involve a number of process steps. Based on the type of business, the steps might be as simple as just loading the images in. It might grow to include matching metadata to digital objects or digital objects to metadata. The challenge is working out a method for correctly matching the digital object to the metadata. Loading can be done in bulk with the challenge here being to locate where all the digital objects are, as they could be spread across different disk systems or even be located on websites, ftp sites, or e-mail servers. In some cases, a workflow process might be needed to ensure the digital object has the correct metadata attached to it.
