[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Folder label creation from resource record

There's also a plugin that I've developed that allows you to print labels from the application itself. It does require some additional CSS depending on the label layout you are using, but there are some examples in the plugin. You'll want to grab the latest release for your version of ArchivesSpace: https://github.com/dartmouth-dltg/container_management_labels/releases

Happy to add more detail about the CSS if you are interested!

Hi Betts,

Yes, we have developed just such a thing and have been using it for a while now, to print both folder and box labels—the program can either use the ingest spreadsheet that goes into ArchivesSpace, or it can retrieve data that is already in ASpace to create the labels. Although this program is not intended to be Northwestern-specific, it is still an open question whether or not it can meet anyone else’s needs.  Anyone interested in exploring the possibilities can contact Gary Strawn directly (mrsmith at northwestern.edu<mailto:mrsmith at northwestern.edu>).

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone has any advice for creating folder labels from resource records in ArchivesSpace. We have been using a Windows PowerShell script that runs over the exported EAD XML file to pull out appropriately leveled container information but have run into problems with it off and on. I'd love to hear what others are doing to create folder labels in an automated way from a resource record if anyone has ideas or solutions to recommend.

Thanks for your time!
