[Archivesspace_Users_Group] field for creating an alternate title?

Hi Sarah,

We were actually wondering about something similar to that too since here
at the Briscoe Center, titles of collections sometimes change. Having a
"Previous Title" field for resource records would be nice. I believe you
would have to use a user-defined field, but someone on this list correct me
if I'm wrong.

We're going to implement a user-defined field, "Filing Title", just for
accessions. This field is in Finding Aid Data in resource records, but
there's not a comparable field in accession records and we want to be able
to sort records by creator surname sometimes. Not exactly the same as your
use case, but thought I'd share nonetheless.
