Eliminate the continuous scroll of the Collection Organization tab


The continuous scroll of the Collection Organization tab is problematic from an accessibility standpoint and also with other types of coding architecture. It's just simply difficult to use, especially with a trackpad, and can be confusing to researchers. Although I am not a coder, I would like to challenge ArchivesSpace to find a different approach to continuous scrolling. (Feel free to add other reasons why the continuous scroll should go away! )

It seems like scrolling in the Collection Organization tab has recently gotten worse in both Firefox and Chrome. I’m experiencing either imperceptible scrolling using mouse wheel/trackpad, or the entire screen scrolling up and down along with the Collection Organization window, depending on the browser. I see this behavior on 2.4.1, 2.7.1, and 2.8.1 (our production server and two sandboxes) even though I don’t recall this being as much of a problem in the past. Holding the shift key and scrolling within the Collection Organization window helps, but we can’t always communicate this to researchers.
