[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Spawning resources

Hi Christie,

We've run into some of the same issues here at Union College.  Another
example is that resource records spawned from accessions ignore defaults
for new resource records.

Presumably some of these have to do with the difficulty of predicting user
desires.  To use one of your examples, should the Provenance field in the
Accessions Module map to the Custodial History Note or the Immediate Source
of Acquisition Note?

I'm wondering if this type of issue is something within the purview of the
new Staff Interface Working Group.
