Hi Virginia,

If you hover your mouse over the titles of fields in a record, a tooltip will come up with a description of what it’s used for and the corresponding DACS element.

Here’s what it looks like for me here:

We have edited the examples and some of the language in the box, FYI.

I'm just getting familiar with ArchivesSpace -- and I wonder if anyone has mapped/crosswalked AS field names with the corresponding DACS elements?

This would be really helpful to me in understanding how we're going to handle our legacy finding aids ...

Point me in the right direction, please!
