Catharijne Convent[edit]

  • Source to upload from:
    • Do the media URLs follow a pattern?
    • Does the site have an API? No
    • What else could ease uploading? (is the site valid XHTML, do they use a WCM…?)
    • Did you contact the site owner? Yes; this site was specifically set up for this particular upload, as the museum itself claimed not to be able to host the images online.
  • Describe the works to be uploaded in detail (audio files, images by …): 572 high-res TIFF files of objects held by the Museum Catharijneconvent in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The metadata were provided as XML and are available as well.

  • Which license tag(s) should be applied?

Probably [1].

  • Is there a template that could be used on the file description pages? Do you think a special template should be created?

AWossink, I could look into uploading this one as well. The linked source only has one file currently, and do you have the xml? Basvb (talk) 13:59, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
Aah I see that I likely misunderstood, you're planning on uploading this batch yourself using GWToolset Arne? See phabricator:T131841 Basvb (talk) 14:16, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
@Basvb: Yes, I was planning to do that in order to get some experience in the GWToolset. However, since this batch has been sitting around for quite a while and uploading with the GWtoolset seems to be a lot slower than your script, it would be great if you are still interested in taking care of this upload as well! Let me know if that suits you - otherwise I am happy to continue as I originally planned. Best, AWossink (talk) 14:26, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
Is it really slow with GWtoolset (more than a day for all, nice thing with GWToolset is that it can run while your PC is off)? The file sizes are quite large compared to the tropenmuseum upload, so any script will be slower. Basvb (talk) 15:04, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
