[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Advice on Accessions CSV Template

Hi Emma,

That is the current template. But it does look like there's some old columns that are not used since the collection management stuff was all reworked.

Events are not currently included in the accessions CSV import, so you might have to add those as a plugin. Are you wanting to have multiple events imported per accession?

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Advice on Accessions CSV Template

Hi everyone

We are about to start a project to set up a CSV export from our acquisition offers system (Reftracker) to ArchivesSpace to create an Accessions Record. We would like to create specific events as part of the ingest process.

I have looked at the help page and the Accessions CVS Template (http://archivesspace.org/importexport)  - but the template seems to be out of date. For example it has functions that are now recorded in the Events sub-module as being populated to the Collection management:

Data Import and Export Maps | ArchivesSpace Home<http://archivesspace.org/importexport>
Built for archives by archivists, ArchivesSpace is the open source archives information management application for managing and providing web access to archives ...


accession_acknowledgement_sent \ collection_management \ agreement_received.

Can anyone point me to an updated version of the Accessions CSV Template or tell me if there are any plans to update it?

Many thanks
