[Archivesspace_Users_Group] bar coding and migration questions

Hi Kelly,

Recording Item-level bar codes is possible through the container module.
Yale University, who supported development of the latest version of the
container module,  has provided some useful notes here

There is no way to directly import from an Access database. However, you
could certainly perform an export-based migration whereby you export your
Access data and relationships to an interim format, such as JSON or CSV,
and import the data using the API and/or one or more of the ArchivesSpace
import tools.

Let me know if that helps get your started.

Best, Jason
