[Archivesspace_Users_Group] DAO Notes in EAD

Hi Tali,

The EAD for the finding aid exports the DAO info that's in the resource record, but doesn't pull additional notes from the actual digital object record. The digital object record itself would need to be exported.

Has anyone found a workaround for this? Is this something that should be submitted to JIRA?

Best wishes,

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] DAO Notes in EAD

Hello everyone,

I'm having trouble with note tags in DAO records when downloading EAD finding aids. During our migration to ArchivesSpace a few years ago, the copyright notes in <daodesc> were mapped as "General Notes" in ArchivesSpace DAO records. However, I noticed that "General Notes" or any other note fields in the DAO record do not export as part of the EAD from ArchivesSpace.

I saw the following ticket but I believe this is about the PUI not the EAD export:

It is crucial that the "General Note" (or any other appropriate field you can recommend) show up in our EAD XML document-we do not use the PUI but instead download the EAD and map it directly onto our online finding aid on the museum website<http://www.guggenheim.org/library-archives/archives-collections>. We are using ArchivesSpace version 2.2.0 in Google Chrome browser.

Also, in the future, can I map DAO fields to export as <descriptivenote> in EAD3? Is this a setting we can tweak in the backend? I would really appreciate it if I can get any input or suggestions! Thank you!
