[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Getting a sense of the group

Hi Jessica and Elaine!

I am also "starting from scratch" and like Jessica I have a third party
hosting for me but have no help from the campus IT department. I currently
use Archon but the data I inherited is messy, incomplete, wildly incorrect,
and nowhere near archival standards so I will not be importing any of it
into ASpace but instead use it as a reference. I am also a lone arranger
and forging ahead on this project solo while also managing all of the day
to day archive requests.

Would love to have a little cohort of newbies that I can troubleshoot with!
