Hi Channing,

We have a similar issue at the Bodleian Libraries. Our approach is to have a repository were our published live catalogues are accessible and to then work on another version of the finding aid in an unpublished repository. This allows us to make necessary re-drafts whilst maintaining access to a published version of the finding aid. We then replace the outdated published version.

Best wishes,

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Drafting changes to finding aids

Our institution is looking to adopt the current PUI after using one that was built in house for several years. Right now, our workflow for making large revisions to finding aids is to rely on a feature in our in-house PUI that allowed us to keep the original versions of finding aids published while making changes without said changes being published. While experimenting with the current PUI, we cannot seem to find such a feature, nor a plugin to provide similar functionality. Has anyone else run into this need? If so, what solutions, both administrative and technical, have you used to address it?

Any and all help is appreciated,
