[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Advice requested for location records and the space calculator

Hello all,

I am working with an archive that is planning to use the top container and location management module so that they can make use of the space calculator. They would like to plan out their location records ahead of time and get them imported into ArchivesSpace. Do you have any advice about getting organized with the location records? Is there anything you wish you had done differently? Some guidelines I have learned so far:

  *   Create a spreadsheet of locations
  *   Draw a map of storage areas
  *   Some locations, like map cases, might be more of a container - make some decisions up front
  *   Practice with linking of locations, containers, and profile records; also, get an idea of what's available in reporting

Is there anything else you would like to share about using the space calculator?

Thank you very much!

- Anne Marie
