      Description

      The Newspaper CModel allows you to ingest a PDF issue via the UI. This calls on a process in Islandora Paged Content to extract each page of the PDF as a TIFF and create individual Page objects as part of the overall Newspaper Issue.

      Newspaper Batch does not support this -- it can only ingest TIFFs in a specific directory hierarchy. Batch ingest of Newspaper PDFs fails to process, both via the UI and via the command line.

      Mark Jordan and I have attempted to use vanilla Islandora Batch to ingest Newspaper issues as a workaround with appropriate parameters, including the Newspaper object as parent, but these attempts have failed.

      Diego offered suggestions for how to add this capability to Newspaper Batch in the Google group: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/islandora/qxS5dtFP4HE/TD6hq141EwAJ

      Suggesting this functionality be added to the module.
