We’ve normalized and reprocessed to pull out text transcription into separate <dao>’s and leave page images in a <daogrp>
as this imports into ArchivesSpace as two separate digital objects, one with multiple file versions:

        <c02 level="item" id="d1e625">
            <unittitle>Alexander Hamilton, New York, New York, to Angelica Schuyler Church, with
              note from E[lizabeth Schuyler] Hamilton.</unittitle>
            <unitdate era="ce" calendar="gregorian">1789 November 8</unitdate>
            <physdesc> ALS, 2 p. </physdesc>
            <daogrp xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:type="extended" id="d1e639">
              <daoloc xlink:type="locator" xlink:title="Page 1" id="d1e640"
              <daoloc xlink:type="locator" xlink:title="Page 2" id="d1e641"
              <daoloc xlink:type="locator" xlink:title="Page 3" id="d1e642"
            <dao xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:type="simple" xlink:title="Text"
            <p>Heartfelt feelings of affection and friendship and loss in the absence of both John
              and Angelica Church following the sailing of their vessel to England.</p>

We’re currently processing further before ArchivesSpace import to merge updated images using IIIF image service, and using @xlink:role attribute to mark as transcriptions, legacy-images, image-service, etc. similar to what Noah posted.

Hi all,

Has anyone had success importing EAD finding aids which contain DO links? Would anyone be able to send along a sample for me to follow? I’m having formatting issues.

Also, for those that have done this: when you include digital object links, are digital object records created and linked to resource records upon import into ASpace?
