Importing Media from Shoah Foundation VHA (Partner Site)

The USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive is a collection of nearly 52,000 testimonies of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses maintained by the University of Southern California's Shoah Foundation, established in 1994 by Steven Spielberg. To import materials from this archive, you must be located at a partner site. If you wish to import clips from a subset of 1000+ testimonies that have been made publicly available, use the Shoah Foundation VHA Online importer instead.

To import media from the Shoah Foundation VHA, click the import icon on your Scalar header bar, scroll down to "Affiliated Archives" and select "Shoah Foundation VHA (partner site)". The Shoah Foundation VHA Importer will appear, with an option to perform a search of the archive. Note that you must already have the XML feed URL for a collection you've previously assembled at the VHA in order to import those videos into Scalar. You can get this URL by clicking the "XML for Scalar" option in VHA.

Once search results are returned, you can preview individual files by clicking their "Preview" links on the right, or select one or more videos 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.
