Hi, Kayla,

From the application, the easiest way might be to use the extent calculator at the resource level. The container types and numbers will be generated. Click Close instead of Create extent if you do not want to save the generated extant statement. Another way would be to use the Mange Containers functionality. It will list all the containers give you an count of all the containers, but not by type.

I attach a png showing the extent calculated window.

At the City of Boston Archives, we recently accessioned a large record group that contains mostly volumes. To make sure that we have an accurate inventory of every single volume, we were wondering if there was a report that we could run in ArchivesSpace that allows us to count these volumes? We are putting each volume in as an item and listing it as a volume in the top container instance so the data should be there, it's just a matter of extracting it.

This might already exist and I just can't figure it out, but, does anyone have any insight into this?
