[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Using Related Accessions component within an accession

Hi, Jordan,

There is a section in the ASpace user manual suggesting ways to relate accessions to each other (see https://docs.archivesspace.org/Default.htm#LinkRelatedAccession.htm%3FTocPath%3DManaging%2520Accessions%2520%7C_____23).  The whole/part relationship is unique to this relationship, whereas the sibling relationship is somewhat duplicative of the accession / resource relationship.

Here is a simple use case that has been offered for the whole/part relationship:

A repository buys at auction a lot of manuscripts, for which it pays a single fee.  The repository then creates an accession record for the lot and an accession record each item in the lot.

It's also not clear to us if there's a specific way one should use the "Related accessions" field within an accession-unlike "Related resources," which I take is meant to be used when linking a spawned resource.

If there's documentation spelling out how this field should be used, or if any of you have local practices you can share, I would appreciate it.
