[EP-tech] What's the ideal method for importing records

Hi All,


Just wondering how everyone handles importing of records into ePrints.

I have a situation where I have access to the metadata for over 1000 records to import, but the import process is still a little mysterious.. My last export/import was when we migrated from 2.x to 3.x.


I would prefer to create an ePrints XML structure, with as much detail as possible, and let ePrints ingest the records…, rather than skip the flat file creation and just cram it into the database..


But if anyone has any other thoughts on ‘best practice’, I would love to hear it, so let me know.
