Hi Rebecca,

For us, we have to click through to the record to get the link.  We're not using the URL as an identifier, so ours looks different: See https://alaska.libraryhost.com/objects?limit=digital_object.  This may be a feature rather than a bug, because this way people are more likely to see the metadata we've entered.  It may not always be crucial, but I fear that otherwise they might not realize it's there, and might miss out on important info.  However, you don't seem to have a live link at that point, either.  Have you added a link in File Version?  For us, that adds an icon with a link to the object: https://alaska.libraryhost.com/repositories/2/digital_objects/13.

I notice you're also using Library Host.  We've found them very helpful, so if the issue isn't resolved here, you might put in a service request with them.

All the best,

I am also a newbie to archives in general and ArchivesSpace in particular.

I have created and link a digital item to a resource.  Is there a way to have a live link display?  The URL is there but you must copy/paste to open it.  Is there a way it can be a live link?


Best regards,
