[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Specifying Physical Location in Resource Records

Resources/Archival_objects/Accessions can have a container Instance, which will link to a top_container that can link to a Location.

Look at: "Managing Containers…/Managing Top Containers/Creating a Top Container” in the online manual. 

It may be a bit confusing that the staff interface has create menus items for most objects, but the option to create a top container, I believe, only appears when you create an instance.

I have expected there to be a way to choose a location when creating each resource record, but does it work in a different way?
