Step 1

Sign in to KgBase and create a new project using "Blank" template.

Step 2

Name your project "Top Music Albums". Enter a brief description, pick privacy setting and choose a color for the project.

Step 3

A table called "Table 1" was automatically created for your project. Rename this table by clicking on "..." icon next to the name, and call it "Albums".

Step 4

Now we'll upload the CSV. We'll use GitHub repository called "500 Greatest Albums". Click here to download the CSV file.

Now go to KgBase and click on the cog wheel button in the upper-right corner. Select "Import CSV" from the list of options.

Step 5

Drag and drop your CSV file onto the upload modal. After a few seconds, your file will be uploaded. You'll see the "Configure CSV file" screen.

On this screen, let's skip the "Number" column, because we won't need it for our example. Click on the select box above the header and change value from "(Create column)" to "(Skip)".
