[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Customizing generated citations for archival components

Just to note that if you don’t want to deal with modifying the default behavior with a plugin, you could also use the API to generate prefercite notes with your desired format, as those have priority over constructing one from the display string. 
( url and timestamp are always added to the end of the citation. )

Changing the code is probably the simpler solution, but in some cases it may be more manageable to change the data.

I assume it would be in an en.yml file, but apparently there are three en.yml files and my IT person is not sure where to look. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
