[Archivesspace_Users_Group] What field does an EADID go into for MARXML ingest?

Hi Kate,

I can talk to you about this offline if you'd like.

In a nutshell, the ArchivesSpace MARCxml importer doesn't include a mapping to the EADID field in the resource record. Even if you put it in your MARCxml (say the 555), it gets drop on ingest.

We're working to convert some 1000 MARC records to EADxml, then autogenerate the EADID field with consecutive numbers. We'd ingest the EAD instead of the MARC.

It's Harvard's installation that won't let you save the resource records without the EADID.

Best wishes,

I tried to ingest a resource from MARC XML. The error message said it needed an EADID. However, MARC doesn't have a specific field for EADIDs and this page in the user manual https://docs.archivesspace.org/Default.htm#ImportMARCXML.htm?Highlight=marc<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__docs.archivesspace.org_Default.htm-23ImportMARCXML.htm-3FHighlight-3Dmarc&d=DwMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=o7OoY1I5SGwJOY4qFC1JgmA4MQwVJOWSxO2IqPX0FiU&m=NbTcTyHruQSkBKzTxIp5P5adihkE-ZJNCKNHn2hG90A&s=t-jQtu0E_UVbYVT7bTSdupv93tteziSMNfFjEoJUzkw&e=> does not say anything about how or where to specify an EADID in MARC.

If anyone can provide better documentation or information on MARC XML resource ingest, please do!

Many thanks!
