When we’ve recorded it, it’s been in the Dimensions field of the Extent section of the record, like here: https://duarchives.coalliance.org/repositories/2/archival_objects/29427

Here’s how it looks in the staff interface:

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Video Length Metadata

Good morning (or afternoon, depending on where you are),

I was wondering if anyone else came across this issue:

In our collection we have many videos where the length of time of the video is important information. However, there is no field to add the length of the videos in ArchivesSpace. Extent wouldn’t work, as it is the physical size of the collection (in boxes or gigabytes etc) whereas I’m looking to have the length of time for the individual videos.

How are other archives handling this type of metadata?

Thanks so much!
