1. As far as I know, you would have to do that in a plugin right now. Here's an example, since it's not obvious where one would do that: https://github.com/YaleArchivesSpace/yale_pui_customizations/commit/18b7be17825cc84916d2b0ad6cd4cfe776545462#diff-7ff34653933e2e6d670c7b053db80db6 So, you just put a list of the notes you want to display above the accordions in the "non_folder" variable, and include the ones that appear in the accordions" in the "folder" variable. All that said, I'd personally like to see the PUI try something else other than using accordions by default to hide notes.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Better notifying users of digital content presence
When our collections have digital content associated with them, our practice is to add an "Existence and Location of Copies" note to the collection level indicating the presence of digital content like digitized copies of the originals. (We do other stuff at lower levels, too.) However, by default, this note only appears if you click the "Expand All" button. This means that users and staff often request boxes-especially small collections-without noticing that all or part of the collection is scanned.
We're considering changing the order of the notes so that this note features more prominently, above the "Expand All" fold. I have two questions.
1. Is this something that is configurable in the standard staff-side interface of ASpace, or would the PUI plug-in need to be edited? (I think the answer is the latter, but just confirming I am not missing something.)
2. Bumping the note above the "Expand All" fold is just the first idea that came to mind. Do you have other ways you signal to users on the collection-level page the presence of digital content? If so, I'm all ears.
Thank you in advance, and sorry if this has been discussed before!
