[Archivesspace_Users_Group] ASpace API - Query by Location Barcode?

The /search/repositories endpoint searches for repositories, so 
filtering that to only return locations will always return no hits. To 
search globally, say for a location with a barcode of 123456789, you 
could use something like this:


All search endpoints return Solr documents. If you want guaranteed 
up-to-date location records, sourced from the MySQL database, extract 
the "uri" from the matched Solr docs, and send GET requests for each.
