Rosetta Walkthrough (METS)

Prior to Set Up


Before we begin any metadata cleaning or file gathering, we need to download a couple programs:

  • Git Bash
  • Python 3.6.2

The links to both downloads can be found below. When you click the link, the downloads should begin shortly.

Git Bash

When you begin the Setup for Git, you will be presented with the License and you can just click Next (okay, you're supposed to read it, do that, because you're supposed to...yeah).

In the Select Components screen, you can just click Next

In the Adjusting you PATH environment screen, the default option, and the one to select, is Use Git from the Windows Command Prompt

In the Choosing HTTPS transport backend screen, the default option, and the one to select, is Use the OpenSSL library

In the Configuring the line ending conversions screen, the default option, and the one to select, is Checkout Windows-style, commit Unix-style line endings

In the Configuring the terminal emulator to use with Git Bash screen, the default option, and the one to select, is Use MinTTY (the default terminal of MSYS2)

In the Configuring extra options screen, there are three check boxes, select the first two.

Now you click Install


After you have downloaded the Python installer, you need to right-click the .exe file and Run as adminstrator

Log in with your computer credentials and you will then be allowed to install Python

When you begin the Python Install, you must make sure to check the "Add Python 3.6 to PATH" checkbox, as well as the default selection of "Install launcher for all users"
