POST: How to Get MODS Using the NYPL Digital Collections API

Dot Porter has written a post sharing her experience working with the NYPL Digital Collections API . Porter explains her initial attempts, roadblocks, and solutions to batch-downloading MODS records for between 1500 and 2000 objects.

(Hint: she was able to do it “with a Mac terminal and just a little bit of XSLT.”)
