I think it would be worth exploring a plug in that links the classifications to the identifiers or more likely allows you to substitute particular classifcations for all parts of the identifer except the ‘last’ one using in your local system

his is something I had hoped to explore at Illinois, as we move forward with our implementation plan (not quite there yet given other project) and would more or less replicate the way was had it set up in Archon, allowing definined navigation paths in the public UI.

At Caltech we are planning to use the Classification module for the ‘series’ field of our legacy records. Our legacy records do not have identifiers connected to the series terms. Is there a way of, either leaving the ‘identifier’ field blank or entering a running number as identifier? If we were entering a running number, we would want to be able to check the last used running number, in order to allocate a new one for a new classification term. Anybody with a similar problem?
