Importing Media from Other Scalar Books

You can search other public Scalar books and import their media into your own book. The media file itself remains where it is; only the metadata pointing to the file is copied into your book. This is a one-time operation; updates made to the metadata in the source book will not be reflected in the destination book, and vice versa.

To import media from another Scalar book, click the menu at the top of the navigation on the left side of the window and select “Import”. Next, click “Other Scalar books”. The Import from another Scalar book screen will appear.

Select the book you want to search from the menu on the left. Only books which have been made public by their authors can be searched. Enter your search terms in the field on the right, or leave the field blank to see all media in the book. Click “Search”.

Once search results are returned, you can preview individual files by clicking their "Preview" links on the right, or select one or more media files to import by clicking their associated checkboxes. Then, clicking the "Import selected media" button at the bottom will bring the media's metadata into Scalar.
