Improvements to batch import of bib records

9

This idea is to implement a queued ingest for the purposes of implementing improvements for batch importing bibliographic records. Currently, staff need to limit the number of records they can import at one time. Importing too large of a batch can cause timeouts or can cause slowdowns for all users because of the high load that occurs when records are being ingested.

The goal is to allow staff to upload thousands of records in one batch and then move on to other work while the system performs the ingest, allowing other, more important, traffic to take precedence over the reingest. Staff will then receive a notification (e-mail?) when the job is completed.

The work would also benefit reingests done during upgrades and authority updates that occur with authorities that are attached to thousands of bib records.
