    FTP stands for “File Transfer Protocol” and is an internet site where you upload your PDFs and available metadata. We will supply you with credentials (the host, username and password). You can log-in, and then drag and drop your PDFs onto the FTP. These files will be mirrored to EBSCO’s server and our Content Management team will retrieve them for processing.
