Hi all,

We’re in the process of migrating EAD into ArchivesSpace and have been considering whether to use the PUI or implement ArcLight for our public interface. One of our major concerns with the PUI is its handling of digital objects (the second is publishing workflow — we really want the ability to make extensive edits over time and to preview them, without risking publishing works-in-progress). It’s great that there are tickets to improve the handling of digital objects! Such as these:

  *   Digital Objects Search: ANW-1102<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/ANW-1102> (Awaiting Prioritization), ANW-1343<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/ANW-1343> (Ready for Testing)
  *   Easily identifying digitized content within a collection:  ANW-1157<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/ANW-1157> (Awaiting More Information) and spinoff ANW-1206<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/ANW-1206> (Awaiting Prioritization)
  *   Integration and display of thumbnails: ANW-810<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/ANW-810> (Ready for Testing), ANW-1209<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/ANW-1209> (Awaiting Prioritization).
It looks like there has been recent activity on ANW-1343 and ANW-810, yay! For the rest, we’re wondering whether there’s any timeline for when they might be worked on or make it into a release? Apologies if we missed this somewhere in the meeting notes of the Development Prioritization sub-team or elsewhere. There’s a note in ANW-1157<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/ANW-1157> from March 2021 that mentions that part of this ticket’s feature request "should be part of a larger discussion related to Digital Objects,” and we wondered if this discussion is planned? Sounds like there’s the potential for significant changes to Digital Objects module?

We’re glad to be migrating to ArchivesSpace and appreciate all transparency around development and the great community support!
