[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Migrating tables into ArchivesSpace

What do you mean by table data? Do you literally mean data in EAD <table>?

If so, I'd suggest reworking the EAD to put the data in semantic rather than in format tags.  Perhaps you can post an example?

Does anyone have experience migrating large amounts of table data from their finding aids into ArchivesSpace, and would be willing to share feedback? For example, did you end up adding the content into a “Notes” field? Just curious as to what strategies institutions employed and what final results looked like.

Thank you,
