Hello ArchivesSpace members,

Thanks to the hard work of the Digital Objects Exports working group<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/display/ADC/Digital+Objects+Exports+Working+Group>, new suggested mappings for two of the exports currently offered by the ArchivesSpace digital objects module (Dublin Core, MODS) have been drafted and are ready to be shared for wider comment. A suggested mapping for the METS export will be available soon. . You can access the mappings by visiting the working group's web page or the links in comments on the relevant JIRA issues.

Of note for those interested in the METS mapping: while ArchivesSpace currently provides for MODS descriptive metadata only within METS records, with the change in mapping we would also aim to provide the option to select either Dublin Core or MODS in the export in the application. Either of these options would reflect the mapping of the standalone export. So please do look at the Dublin Core and MODS mappings in that light as well.

Dublin Core: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-921
MODS: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-920
METS: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-919, https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-788, and https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-781

You may comment on any or all of the mappings. Please consider them both in terms of your current (or anticipated workflow) and your preferred workflow for the future and let us know if there is anything missing or anything that would negatively impact what you need to do. (And, of course, we're also very happy to hear confirmation if the proposed mappings suit your purposes as is.)

Please submit your feedback by commenting in the mapping files, commenting on the JIRA issues or emailing me directly. As much as possible, we'd like to receive feedback by May 19. Once the mappings have been finalized, we can schedule the revisions, as well as the additional choice for descriptive metadata included with the METS export, for inclusion in the application.

Thanks in advance for your feedback and participation in this process.
