Hi Wendy,

Adding classifications through the SUI is a fairly quick process outlined in the Help Center at https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ArchivesSpaceUserManual/pages/890208308/Managing+Classifications. You can also watch our user tutorial videos on classifications at https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ArchivesSpaceUserManual/pages/915144907/Classifications+Module.

That being said, this isn’t really a batch process.  If you’re interested in doing more tasks in bulk, you may be interested in using the ArchivesSpace API.  The API documentation is located at http://archivesspace.github.io/archivesspace/api/. Dave Mayo gave a presentation at the Online Forum this year on the basics of the API if you’d like to get some exposure to the API and decide if this is a direction you’d like to pursue.  You can review that at https://youtu.be/9LVG8Ey_9eI.

I hope this information helps.  If anyone else has any tips or tricks for managing classifications, please feel free to chime in!

We've created classifications and want to link batches of selected resources records to them. Is there a way to do this in the SUI?

Many thanks,
