Hi Celia,

What a great question! I don't currently have access to a long list of
container profiles (my former colleagues at Yale may be willing to share
the ones we came up with there), but I do have a quick-and-dirty method for
importing them into ArchivesSpace via the API, available here:
(I prepared this as a proof of concept when working with a colleague --
you'll want to update the variables to match your own environment, and you
will also need to update infile.csv to reflect the list of contianer
profiles you'll end up using)
