Thank you, Kevin. It's good to know I'm not the only person interested in this functionality.

I saw that in another thread, John H. asked who has the ability to add things to Pivotal Tracker. I haven't seen a reply to that, but I'd also like to know how to go about submitting a request to Pivotal Tracker.

We also have this issue at DU, generally when we receive a gift of personal papers that is ultimately dispersed across several existing collections. Right now we track this sort of thing in free-text notes in both Resource and Accession records, but I think it would help users to have those notes be links to the records in question.  -k

I'd like to suggest an enhancement request for some future release of ArchivesSpace.

I want the ability to link two resource records to each other in much the same way we can link an accession to a related resource.

Right now, "related materials" is a free-text note. Having the note is important, because sometimes the related materials are not in the same repository. However, I'd like to have the option to also include links to other resources in the same repository.

Does anyone else think this is a good idea to suggest as an enhancement? Can you think of reasons it might be undesirable?

Thank you!
