I am also very interested in learning about a possible change in the location module, as we are have felt that currently, the program does not fit our location needs.

Sue's suggestion with hiding or shadowing instance information in an archival object record is also one I agree with. I assume you were mainly referring to the public view, as often times patrons would not benefit from seeing this information. I feel the public instances can sometimes create unnecessary clutter.

Subject: Two questions

Hi collective wisdom,

We are using a Lyrasis-hosted instance of ArchivesSpace and so are struggling with customizations (and other things).  I have two questions for the group and developers:

1)      I remember seeing discussions about adding location data in a more managed way (similar to the way Archivists' Toolkit handled it).  Is that feature still in the pipeline and if so, what is an eta?  It's especially important for us because we are about to implement a custom plugin for use with Aeon, that pulls location information out of ASpace.

2)      Is it possible to hide or shadow instance information in an archival object record?
