I posted a call for a discussion of DOs in ASpace with a link to sign up. I am about to start contacting people who have filled out the survey. Feel free to check it out.

Here at the Harvard University Archives we'd be interested in what others are doing, as well.

Hello -

I am interested in some specifics about how folks describe born-digital objects in ASpace. Links to workflows would be appreciated, but I also have some questions we're mulling below if you'd prefer to answer those directly.

When linking a digital object representing a born-digital record to a file-level ASpace record, do you also create an instance?
If a born-digital publication (e.g. a college catalog PDF) exists in your web archive, do you link the ASpace record for that publication to the web archive or to a copy of the record in a digital repository (or other)?
How does your institution use "File Versions" for born-digital digital objects?

Thank you!
