[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Large Indexes in ArchivesSpace?

The Joint Archives of Holland (Hope College) has been working on migrating
data into ArchivesSpace, and I am looking to see if anyone has suggestions
on how to handle some large indexes (500-1000 pages) that the Joint
Archives shares with researchers.  At this time we have the indexes as PDF
files in Digital Commons (https://digitalcommons.hope.edu/news_index/), but
we are interested in making them searchable from our ArchivesSpace public

Would I need to add each part of the index as archival objects in
ArchivesSpace or is there another method where the text from the indexes
could be added to the system (I thought about the notes area of a resource
record, but 1000 pages is a lot of text!).

Thank you,
