Some ArchivesSpace institutions make use of digital preservation systems for ingests. The descriptive information in ArchivesSpace should be able to aid in appraisal and arrangement, and can replicate this data in digital preservation systems. Furthermore, institutions can write “location” information for digital objects back to ArchivesSpace. In fact, a number of digital preservation integrations already exist.
Archivematica includes functionality that allows users to associate objects in Archivematica to related objects in ArchivesSpace. Please see the Archivematica documentation for specific details on setup and process.
(Including the Rockefeller workflow). Due to the nature of the integration involving three systems, Artefactual does rely on the archivists at Bentley to test and report problems. (The Bentley is also active in fixing issues as community contributors). Artefactual tests the ArchivesSpace integration but does not test the DSpace integration.
Preservica includes functionality that allows users to associate objects in Preservica to related objects in ArchivesSpace. Documentation is available for registered Preservica users and a brief overview of the integration is available.
Documentation & Support
Supports ArchivesSpace 1.5.0 and later versions. Tested with 2.6, but not yet tested with 2.7+
Support provided through Preservica's support desk as specified in the user agreement.
A new integration process was outlined in a December 2019 webinar. The plugin and workflow discussed in the webinar was created by The Bentley Historical Library.
Archive-Its internal documentation refers to an older integration provided via a plugin from NYU. The ArchivesSpace-DO-Plugin includes an endpoint designed for integration with Archive-It. The endpoint generates a JSON response that provides the title, number of digital objects, and a link to provide a user with more information about a collection for a resource in ArchivesSpace. The URL can be used to create a link between a resource in ArchivesSpace and a see URL that has been archived in Archive-It.
