Import Metadata via a standardized Excel Sheet. Excel is the most easy way to import charter descriptions into MOM-CA.
The import works smoothly if you use one of the recommended Excel Sheets below and in particular if you adhere the column names as they are defined in the recommended Excel Sheets.

Import Metadata according to the XML standard 'Charters Encoding Initiative' (CEI). CEI is the preferred way to import charter descriptions since it is the internal database format of MOM-CA and thus offers the most extensive encoding possibilities.
The import works smoothly if your CEI document is well-formed XML and if it is valid against the CEI Schema below.

Import Metadata according to the XML standard 'Encoded Archival Description' (EAD). MOM-CA supports a subset of EAD called 'momEAD' which contains those parts of EAD useful for charters.
The import works smoothly if your EAD document is well-formed XML and if it is valid against the momEAD Schema below.

Import any XML file containing charter descriptions into MOM-CA. To make the import work you need a XSLT script which transforms the XML document into CEI.

Import Metadata via your institutions OAI interface.
To make the import work, you need a XSLT Script which transforms the OAI metadata format - mostly a subset of 'Dublin Core' (DC) - into CEI.

Directly connect your database with MOM-CA. The SQL import is straightforward since you can synchronize your database and the MOM-CA database with few clicks at any time.
To make the import work you have to configure a database connection. You need a SQL script which reads out your database row by row and a XSLT script which transforms the database rows into CEI.
