Subject: example finding aids/records for ArchivesSpace visual layout project

Hello again, ArchivesSpace members,

I'm assembling a test corpus of finding aids and other records for use in the visual layout project with Cherry Hill Company. This data will be useful in helping those we're working with understand the diversity of forms that archival collections and their descriptions and other metadata take and designing to suit a range of needs.

Since time is of the essence, I'm focusing on files known to successfully import in any format that ArchivesSpace accepts - EAD finding aids, accessions in CSV format, digital objects in CSV format, or MARCXML records. You can either send me your source files known to import successfully or export records from your ArchivesSpace in EAD or MARCXML and send them my way for this purpose. No record is too small or too big - or too weird - as long as it's something you manage in ArchivesSpace. Since some types of records do not import/export with collection descriptions, examples of ways you use things like classifications, events, and collection management records with your example records, as well as what you include in your repository record, would also be useful. Please limit example records to no more than 5 per type per submitter, please.

The intent is to use these records to populate the test instance for this staff interface project and nothing else, but if you're willing for them to be used for any testing purposes, please indicate that when you send them and we may reuse them when other circumstances inevitably come up.

If you'd like your example records to be included, please send them to me by Friday, March 23. Thanks for your help!
