Main Page > Resources > Resources/CSV templates

On this page you will find copies of the CSV templates we provide for use when importing data into AtoM. As the CSV files change over versions, we will add sections, so that you can be sure you are using the right template for your AtoM installation.

For more information on CSV import, see the Import/Export section of our User manual. Links directly to each major release's CSV import documentation are included in the relevant sections below.

Tip

Did you know you can also find all the CSV import templates inside AtoM? They are located in lib/task/import/example.

Migrating data to AtoM? Check out the CSV transformation page for information on transformation scripting!

Page organization

This page has been divided first by type and then by release.

If there are no changes to the CSV templates for a major release, a link or section will not be included - you can then use the templates from the previous release. Be sure to review the CSV import documentation in the AtoM User manual for your release.

Archival descriptions

Below you'll find copies of the CSV template examples for archival descriptions, organized by each major release. A change log is included so that you can quickly determine what has changed.

At this time, we provide templates for the ISAD(G) and RAD descriptive templates in AtoM. If you are using a different content standard (e.g. DACS, DC, or MODS), we recommend using the ISAD(G) template and ignoring any fields that do not crosswalk. Information about crosswalk mappings can be found in the Data Entry / Templates section of the AtoM User manual.

AtoM 2.6 CSV templates

Important

There have been no changes to the columns in these updated templates. Instead, the sample data has been updated to include references to the relevant standard element, and columns previous not included in the examples have been added. You can still use the 2.3 templates with AtoM 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, and 2.6, however!

Change log

  • Added missing columns from examples - accessionNumber and digitalObjectPath. See issue #13300
  • Updated the example data to include references to the related standard element number wherever possible. See issue #10070

See the 2.6 CSV import documentation here.

Templates

AtoM 2.3 CSV templates

Important

The AtoM 2.3 release includes CSV export functionality. During roundtrip testing, it was discovered that events which were not "creation" were not properly roundtripping (e.g. exporting and re-importing properly). Consequently, to better support users importing and exporting data about events and actors who are not creators (but might be accumulators, manufacturers, broadcasters, etc), major changes have been made to the 2.3 CSV template relating to actors and events. This means that 2.2 and earlier CSV templates may no longer import properly. Please see the 2.3 CSV import documentation for further guidance.

Change log

  • Changes to how Actors and events (e.g. creators, creation events, etc) are implemented to better support roundtripping of non-creation events (e.g. accumulation, broadcasting, etc)
    • creators, creatorHistories, creationDates, creationDatesStart, and creationDatesEnd columns removed
    • eventActors, eventActorHistories, eventTypes, eventDates, eventDatesStart, and eventDatesEnd columns added to replace previous columns
    • In RAD template, eventDescriptions replaces creationDateNotes, and eventPlaces has been added
  • Added new genreAccessPoints column to support genre access points - see issue #9390
  • Removed duplicate column radNoteOnPublishersSeries - see issue #9762
  • Updated the sample data for better mapping to related standards fields - see issue #10070

  • Other changes to import behavior:
    • Previously, new terms in the resourceType or acquisitionType columns would trigger an error and halt the import. Now, they will be added to the related taxonomy
    • When a duplicate accessionNumber is encountered during an import, the console log will now include the accession number of the conflict for reference

Templates

AtoM 2.0.0 and earlier CSV templates

The following CSV templates should work for AtoM 2.0.0, 2.0.1, and 2.0.2, as well as any previous ICA-AtoM release that supports CSV import.

See Also

See the 2.0 CSV import documentation here.

Templates

Deaccession records

Below you'll find copies of the CSV template examples for deaccession records, organized by each major release. A change log is included so that you can quickly determine what has changed. The ability to import deaccession records via CSV was first introduced in the AtoM 2.5 release.

Templates

In AtoM, there are 2 CSV templates for importing authority records - a primary template, as well as one optional secondary templates to add relationships between actors (the Relationships CSV).

See the latest CSV import documentation here.

AtoM 2.6 CSV templates

Prior to 2.6, alternative forms of name could only be imported via a separate CSV imported at the same time as new authority record data in the primary template, using the CSV import command-line task. We have overhauled the CSV import templates, merging the alias fields into the primary template, revising the relationships CSV, and adding support for importing relationships via the user interface. Users can also add relationships to existing authority records - previously, the relationships CSV could only be imported at the same time as new data in the primary authority record template, using the CSV import command-line task. We've also fixed a bug where new entity types (or a mismatch in capitalization for existing entity types) would cause a CSV import to fail.

Important

The alias CSV template has been deprecated and the relationships CSV has been significantly overhauled. Be sure to use the latest templates when importing data into a 2.6 AtoM installation!

Change log

  • Deprecate the Aliases CSV template. Merge the alias CSV fields into the primary authority record CSV template - add new multi-value columns for parallelNames, standardizedNames, and otherFormsOfName to the primary authority record CSV template. See issue #13277
  • Overhaul the Relationships CSV template. Rename source and target columns to sourceAuthorizedFormOfName and </code>targetAuthorizedFormOfName</code>. Replace category column with relationType and support use of bi-directional relationship terms (e.g. "controls" / "is controlled by") as values. See issue #13279
  • Allow the Relationships CSV to be used to add relationships between existing authority records. See issue #13280
  • Add support for importing relationships via the user interface. See issue #13286
  • Fix issue with new entity types or variations in capitalization for existing entity type names causing the import to fail. See issue #13295

Templates

Archival Institutions

CSV import and export for archival institutions (aka repository records) was introduced in the 2.4 release.
