[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Sharing/previewing Accession Records

Hi Bri,

We have a similar use case at Yale. We often print our accession records to accompany new acquisitions through the processing and cataloging workflow. In order to save paper and print out reasonably formatted copies of accession records we contracted with Hudson Molonglo to develop a plugin. See https://github.com/hudmol/yale_accession_slips.

The plugin adds a "Print accession record" option under the "More" menu in the accession record view. This creates a PDF of the accession record.

We make use of a number of user-defined fields in our accession records, and the layout of the PDF incorporates those, so this plugin might not work perfectly for your local implementation. But you could give it a try, or fork it and tweak it to meet your needs.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Sharing/previewing Accession Records

Hi everyone,

Could anyone share methods for sharing full Accession records outside of ArchivesSpace? We don't utilize the AS PUI, and we are not using any sort of endpoint for Accession records. Ideally, we would have something like a print preview that we could share. It doesn't look like any of the reports do this, and the Generate PDF function is only for Resources (at least for our version of AS 2.7.1).
