Fellow ArchivesSpace members,

I am participating in the implementation of ArchivesSpace here at Yale.  I'm particularly involved with how we will use the accessioning module.  One critical piece of functionality for us not present in ArchivesSpace is the ability to create records of payments made for new accessions.  In the Archivists' Toolkit we use User Defined Fields to capture the necessary data, but in ArchivesSpace we hope to structure better the relevant data and generally improve the way we do things.

Right now we imagine working with developers to create a new payments module within ArchivesSpace.  This would allow payments to be linked to accession records, or conceivably to resources or digital objects.  After discussing our preliminary ideas with Brad Westbrook, he wisely suggested that others in the ArchivesSpace community might be interested in something like this as well.  

If you would find a payments module useful in your local implementation, please let me know.  I'd love to develop something that will be useful to the broader ArchivesSpace community, not just in a local Yale context.
