[Archivesspace_Users_Group] I should have been more clear in my question

Could it be accomplished by expanding out the Advanced Search in the staff interface to include different keywords?  I wonder if searching “___” and the resource identifier might do it?  Otherwise/additionally, would be it be helpful to have a “Search this collection” search bar on a resource page?  (Sorry for my lousy wireframe).  Ideally then it would show all of the results within the Resource tree.  It would mean having to pull up the individual collection, but I remember definitely cases where I ended up downloading the PDF of the finding aid to keyword search it to find what I needed via the staff interface since it was something nested among dozens of series.  If others have ideas, please keep sharing them!

I should add that I think that there should be an easier, user-friendly way to do this in the staff interface, though!!!  Searching for the URI fragment just happens to be my current workaround.

I wonder if anyone else has other solutions for this right now, especially a working plugin that could become part of the core code?

Hi, Joan.

In the PUI, yes, you can do this.

In the Staff Interface, you can also do this, but the approach isn’t as obvious.  But you can return every record that’s part of a specific resource by searching for its URI fragment.  For example, in http://test.archivesspace.org<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__test.archivesspace.org&d=DwMGaQ&c=cjytLXgP8ixuoHflwc-poQ&r=7Ez68qVcrmRD6nn1FqwoHBDEOxeRUCPm3xGvnFT0zjU&m=11hM8HX7HlA9sIpr53-NaHOP075tgHypEKvcVTWnm4E&s=r2jIsp6YrP9MJ4M1y9UYt5iqAyax0ajQMSu75vno1OQ&e=>, there’s a Repository named GoneRepo, and in that repository there’s a resource named Aperture Labs Records.  That resource has a URI fragment of “resources/45”, which is unique in that instance of ArchivesSpace.  If you search for that fragment in quotes, like so, http://test.archivesspace.org/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=%22resources%2F45%22<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__test.archivesspace.org_search-3Futf8-3D-25E2-259C-2593-26q-3D-2522resources-252F45-2522&d=DwMGaQ&c=cjytLXgP8ixuoHflwc-poQ&r=7Ez68qVcrmRD6nn1FqwoHBDEOxeRUCPm3xGvnFT0zjU&m=11hM8HX7HlA9sIpr53-NaHOP075tgHypEKvcVTWnm4E&s=6vKqh-2GvwL35qfsDQPGPK8FiVy2ocxHaW0aI-GTFGg&e=>, then you’ll get all of the records associated with that collection.  You can then filter by “archival objects,” for instance, if you only want all the components that are part of that collection, rather than top container, event, and other record types.

Does that help?

I was specifically asking if one could search within a collection in the staff interface, not the PUI.
