Prepare a batch file uploads to Digital Commons repositories by using auto generated URLs that are copied into batch load spreadsheets. The URLS are generated by posting files in publicly accessable GoogleDrive folders, and by running a script in GoogleSheets. Please see Strauss and Miles "Automating Workflow: From a Trickle to a Stream"

These instructions and files have been compiled based on the work of a number of contributors through the Digital Commons Network but largely by Strauss & Miles. These instructions are posted with the intent to freely share.
