At Cambridge University we use EAD data as part of our workflow to link archival metadata to records in our Digital Library. As we have some huge multi-level catalogues on ArchivesSpace (e.g. Cambridge University Archives), it would be helpful to be able to export EAD information below resource level for sections of a catalogue.
This may be linked to https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/ANW-773 and being able to create PDFs at any level of a catalogue.
Realise this this is not linked to as that allows the full finding aid to be downloaded from any level (not to download a finding aid from a record selected which excludes parent/ancestor information and includes child records).
- just to be clear, the request is not to export and EAD for a single component, but to export an EAD for a component and any of its children? Or a component and everything below it, regardless of hierarchy (i.e. both siblings and children)?
Thanks - component and everything below it (children, grandchildren, etc, etc) regardless of hierarchy would be great.
In this example, https://archivesearch.lib.cam.ac.uk/repositories/2/archival_objects/7907 - it would be the archives of the ADC theatre and all children, grandchildren of that record- but not the siblings of the component (such as https://archivesearch.lib.cam.ac.uk/repositories/2/archival_objects/7909).
We have implemented this locally to support internal digitisation workflows- suggest this ticket is closed. If you’re interested in further info about how we did it, please contact email@example.com
