Hi Cheri,

From what you describe, Component Unique Identifier is the best field in which to record this information. This field is part of the standard EAD export (it exports as <unitid>), so it is available for use in the PDF. The PDF layout and formatting is controlled by an XSLT stylesheet (called as-ead-pdf.xsl) that comes with ArchivesSpace and is stored on your server in the archivesspace/stylesheets folder. The stylesheet is editable and customizable, if you have parts that you want to display differently from how it comes “out of the box”.

There is code already in the stylesheet that is commented out that can be uncommented to add unitids to higher level components. Does anyone on the list have a stylesheet they can share that displays unitids at lower levels? Or can you point Cheri in the right direction for how to modify hers?

Hi list,

I'm finding that somewhere in the annals of time, individual pieces of ephemera were given museum object numbers in TMS, and these numbers are written on the items. I'm wondering if anyone out there has a best practice for recording these numbers in AS. I thought recording the TMS number in the Component Unique Identifier field at item level would work, but it doesn't show up in the pdf. (It does show in the public interface, however.) What have other people done?
