Thanks for the info.  I did talk with my I.T. department and have worked out somewhat of a solution.

My understanding is that ArchivesSpace is not itself equipped to store files. You need to put the image files on a web server, and then you’ll have URIs to provide to ArchivesSpace. When you visit a page in ArchivesSpace, it will actually load the image from that web server, so you need somewhere reliable and under your control where the image files will stay in place. I recommend asking your IT staff for assistance setting up a directory on a web server that you can upload all your images to.

How do I create URI’s from jpegs saved on my hard drive to upload onto ArchivesSpace?  I had migrated from ARCHON, which had existing Digital Library.  I have new images to attach to finding aids but can’t figure it out.
