Good afternoon,

I want to thank everyone who answered my many questions concerning ArchivesSpace through the years.  I have one last request.  I will no longer be supporting ArchivesSpace and need to remove myself from this listserve.
Can someone point me to the directions on how to do that?

Thanks very much!

Rick Neal

Hi Bri,

On resource records, we use user-defined strings to store OCLC numbers, and have a little custom mapping that outputs these to the MARC 035 field.  We also have a user-defined controlled vocabulary list that we use to assign records to a collecting area (e.g. Literature, US History) that correspond to a curatorial area of strength.

BTW I love this thread - it's great to see how others are using these fields.

Hey Bri,

We use User Defined Fields for our resource records to keep track of acquisition data from legacy catalog systems and practices. For instance:

integer_1: GALIN Accession Number - old old catalog
integer_2: GIL Accession Number – current catalog, but old practice
text_1: Arrival Status/Gift Information
text_4: Donor Information
date_1: Date Received

Hi all,

Would anyone mind sharing some uses cases for User Defined Fields on Resource or Accession records?
