Books/Compound Objects


We’re investigating using Omeka in the short term to provide access to our yearbooks. We’d really like to utilize the Universal Viewer so that we can have facing pages. Unfortunately, at this point I can’t figure out how to bulk upload the page files. I can add separate JPEGs via Sideload, but then have to manually add each file to the item. If I upload as a single PDF, I just get endless scrolling through the document. I feel like I must be missing something obvious. Does anyone else have a solution to this?


Hello, I see this is from almost a year ago. I am working on a similar project and wondering if you ever found a solution to your problem. I haven’t loaded any media as of yet. I’m actually still figuring out how to configure the UV differently for each site within Omeka S.

Thank you,


To upload multiple files by item, you can use the csv import, that has three possible modes for that: items (with a multi-valued column “files”), medias (one row by file), or "mixed resource (one row for the item and one row for each file).
