[Archivesspace_Users_Group] AT to ASpace Migration -- Digital Object Date Label

I don't really have anything to add, but yes, I've definitely seen this as
well.  (I'll note that when one adds a Digital Object instance to an
existing file/item in AT, the date field is automatically populated with
the date information from the resource component record, so this isn't a
matter of the field being used incorrectly in our AT deployments.)


I agree that this will be problematic going forward and would like to see
a change. I haven't tried out the version of the migration plugin released
this morning yet - perhaps this was already addressed there?

Has anyone else run into this problem with Digital Objects?


We anticipate this being a larger problem as we get into digitizing more
of our legacy collections and would love to see a revision to how ASpace
handles the digital object dates.

In migrating our Digital Objects from AT to ArchivesSpace using the
migration plugin, we noticed that the Digital Object Date Label defaults
to "digitized" in ArchivesSpace.


So where our Digital Objects in AT might have a Date Begin in 1950 and
Date End in 1951, ArchivesSpace now defaults to displaying those dates as
the dates the materials were digitized. 


Is there any way to change this default label? It really isn't ideal for
us to have all of the DOs default to a digitized date, as that is not the
information that we have been putting in the Date boxes in AT.
