Hi Patrick,

Is this something you have submitted to LYRASIS?  As an institution that uses the hosting service, we are somewhat limited in our customization of the software, and since this is a feature that I’m sure a lot of folks want, it would be great to have it included.

Just a thought.

My colleague, Hillel Arnold, has written a script to export all published EAD. It’s a little tailored to our installation, and has a bug or two, but with a little tweaking it could probably work for you.

As far as I'm aware, there's no bulk EAD export functionality in ASpace.  However, since ASpace's resource identifiers are sequential integers, you can loop over each resource id in a repository and make an API call for its EAD record:
for x in {first..last}; do curl -H '[session token]' "https://[address]/repositories/[id]/resource_descriptions/${x}.xml<https://[address]/repositories/%5bid%5d/resource_descriptions/$%7bx%7d.xml>" > aspace_${x}.xml; done
A loop like that should generate EAD records for each resource in your repository.

Greetings all,

             Is there an API or mass export feature for exporting all EAD records from a repository, etc.? I am only seeing a collection level export feature.
