The URI that displays at the bottom is an identifier for the digital object
record and is used internally by the ArchivesSpace API
It isn't a location (a URL) so nothing is actually "stored" there. It's
just a way to reference a record and is available as an API endpoint via
various HTTP request methods (GET
/repositories/2/digital_objects is also an API endpoint (GET

For anyone building services that communicate with the ArchivesSpace API,
having the record URI available in the staff interface is handy. At NC
State we had been providing the URI on the front end via a plugin but it
was integrated into the core code in version 2.5.2.
