OHMS Import plugin

Is anyone using OHMS with Omeka? I think I set everything up as required, but I’m stuck on where I should be uploading the .xml file from? I’ve put a copy of it on the cachefile on the server and can pull it up by entering the proper URL. But that doesn’t bring in the metadata and I’d have to do it manually for each item.

So, if I want to use the OHMS Import plugin… where do I put the .xml and .csv files so that Omeka can get them? When I put copies on my hard drive and try to import, I get this error message: “LogicException: OHMS file must be validated before retrieving list of column examples. in /home/souther5/subdomains/archive.southernfoodways.org/plugins/OhmsImport/models/OhmsImport/File.php:62”

I feel like I must be missing something really obvious. Help!

I’m still in the figuring out stage of using OHMS with Omeka as well, so I’m not certain my solution is the best one out there but perhaps it will help.

We have been using an in-house webserver for our audio and viewer files (aka xml files exported from OHMS). For the viewer to show up in Omeka, you have to reference this webserver URL file location in the OHMS XML Filename field. We have found that you can do this in the csv metadata import to OHMS step.

I’m not the IT person behind this, so I don’t know the whys, I just know it works when I do it this way. The link we use to link the audio is different than the link to the xml file. For example the link to the audio file would be https://files.library.dixie.edu/1968/1968-134-audio, while the xml file would be https://oralhistory.library.dixie.edu/render.php?cachefile=ORALHIST_1968-134A.xml, even though they are at the same location.
