[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Purpose/function of repository data element in location record

Dear all,

I've been working through the excellent AS help materials about location management but I haven't been able to find the answer to this question, though apologies if I have missed anything.

When you create a new location record in AS there is a data element at the bottom of the location record which allows you to select a repository. As we will have 30 repositories on our AS instance It could be helpful to understand the purpose of linking the location record to a specific repository. I wondered whether it would be the case that AS users would only be able to see location records for their own repository, but that doesn't seem to be the case- if I select repository A, I can still browse the locations in repository B. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Best wishes,
