Hi everyone,
Here at Northwestern Libraries, we are at the beginning of a comprehensive UX review of our ArchivesSpace public interface<https://findingaids.library.northwestern.edu/>, which we have been using since pretty early-on (either late 2016 or early 2017, I can't remember). To that end, I've just dug up this list that Mark Custer put together a couple of years ago (below), which is a fantastic resource-but I'm not sure if it's still up to date. Are there other lists of ASpace PUI users, or is this still the best resource...or has the ASpace PUI become so commonplace now that a list like this is no longer needed?

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] The ArchivesSpace PUI in 2019

Happy New Year, and happy Wednesday:

I wanted to follow up on this blog post, https://archivesspace.org/archives/2534<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__archivesspace.org_archives_2534&d=DwMFAg&c=yHlS04HhBraes5BQ9ueu5zKhE7rtNXt_d012z2PA6ws&r=fciHLC2ou0tXKp-JlPlsrEmslFw9tnR331DgXAhVLvo&m=TPNoJSqTizdcNFtzr7JpuGdmllmaf_QFQcGMlXaDq2k&s=NYm35eX375VBFRTPTOcRvnDVehVDsLZ6bE8GYhyrtko&e=>, now that Yale is using the ArchivesSpace Public Interface in production.

Every once in a while, I run a few online searches to see who else is using the public interface.  Back in November 2017, I had found 48 different sites (with about 9 of those sites that looked to be testing the waters).  As of today, I have found ... drum roll... :

  *   153 total sites using the PUI
  *   133 using ArchivesSpace 2.1 or newer, with about 10 of those perhaps still in beta (but I've added any site that I could find with an online search)
  *   6 using Aeon for requesting
  *   4 outside of the U.S

Here's a link to the document where I've been keeping track of the sites:

I've updated that document so that anyone should be able to make edits, so feel free to correct any data that's there, add something, delete, etc.

At Yale, in the next couple of months we are looking to make a few changes to the "Collection Organization" / single-scroll view.  We'll write back to the list once we have more to share about that. I'm curious if there are any other institutions looking to make changes to general functionality in the public interface, whether in regards to searching, indexing, digital object integration, HTML or PDF displays, etc.

I also just wanted to write back now that there are over 100 sites using ArchivesSpace as a public interface.  That's really cool!

All my best, and I look forward to seeing where folks take the PUI in the near future.
