[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Linking related accessions below collection level

Hi all,

We have an interest in linking archival objects (i.e. the levels below collection level) in resource records back to the accessions they came from. The situation that precipitated discussion about this possibility was that we have one series of materials that is associated with multiple accession records.

Unless I'm missing something, the only way one can currently link to accessions from resource records is at the collection level. There is no "Related accessions" feature at levels below that.

The way we're doing this now is creating an accruals note at the appropriate level and typing the accession number into the free text field, but having a direct link between the two would be handy. For born-digital collections, we are also linking the original containers from which the digital content came to the appropriate level in the resource record using the instance module.

I'm wondering if others in the community have discussed or considered this before.
