I have not yet brought ArchivesSpace online yet, but within Archon, for the
university permanent art collection, we uploaded a digital photograph of
each art item, described it, and also uploaded a pdf of the accession
record.  Here's an example:


I have looked into how the data exported into ArchivesSpace, but I don't
see why it wouldn't work.  Our university's "The Art Gallery" wanted to at
lease have a basic online record of each piece and its location (at the
time of cataloging--whether in storage or placed somewhere on campus).
