Hi, Steve,

Digital object components are for modeling and structuring complex digital objects, that is, digital objects in which rendering of the intellectual content requires two or more digital files.  

There's a couple of examples in our teaching instance at demo.archivesspace.org.   Feel free to look at:




Hope this helps.

Brad W.

What is the role of digital_object_components ? 

I have a number of digital objects imported into my system, some with several files,  but zero digital_object_components .

The digital_object schema doesn't seem to have a link to a digital_object_component, however
the digital_object_component does have a digital_object link.   The hierarchy seems to be the opposite
of what the names would suggest to me.
