[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Digital Object vs Resource record

I’m curious about how people are handling digital objects attached to resources in ASpace.  If you have created an archival object for which you will attach a digital object as an instance, where do you tend to put the bulk of the descriptive metadata?  Or do you duplicate notes and/or children in both the DO and the resource record?  How about DO’s dates?  Do you tend to record only the date the digital object was created or the dates of the digitized materials within as well?

I am, of course, reluctant to have to type the same data twice.  However, since I will be publishing many of the DOs for public view, I’m inclined to want the same level of detail in both the finding aid and the digital object record.  Anyone care to share what you do in this area?
