[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Exporting Archival Objects in MARCXML or EAD

Hi Brad -

Following up on the discussion regarding use cases for exporting component records, I'd like to offer the following.

We'd like to export individual resource components with any associated digital object metadata-or vice versa: export digital object records along with the descriptive metadata from the resource component to which the DO is linked. Ideally, Aspace would support batch export of these records in multiple metadata formats. This Aspace metadata export, when bundled with the objects themselves, could form a SIP for our Fedora repository.

I hope this description makes sense.

Hi, Rebecca.

ArchivesSpace does not yet support batch exporting.  Nor does it support exporting of individual component records, if that is what you mean by "individual archival objects."  If that is what you mean, I would like to hear more about your use case for exporting individual components-or anybody else's use case for the same.

Hi All,

I feel like I'm missing something obvious. I see the export button at the resource level which exports the resource level information in either EAD or MARCXML; however, we would like to export our individual archival objects or the entire collection. How do I do that?

Thank you,
