Sorry for sending a late response.  The Smithsonian has used the DAO tag to individual images and group of digital sets.  As digitization rate picks up, we are thinking more about how to scale up, and display images as part of finding aids.
We use http links to point to image sets for display and build it as DAO tags throughout a finding aid document.
This is an example from Archives of American Art collection:

If you are interested in more details, there is a blog about it:  http://si-siris.blogspot.com/2016/05/the-dilemmas-of-sharing-digital-assets.html

Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you.

Hi All,

Apologies – my enquiry isn’t  strictly related to ArchiveSpace, but I was just wondering how many other organisations are looking at implementing or have implemented embedded digital objects or thumbnails in their finding aid display?  I’m aware of the work Duke have done on this, and NLA here in Australia have also done a lot of work around their display but I wondered if many other organisations were going down this path, and what additional software is being used to support it?
