Hi VivianLea,

Not sure if this helps, but we use this configuration (which we got from
the Virginia Tech Aspace manual -- so shout out to them)

> Good morning,
> I have external word documents for my finding aids. I would like to link
> those into the top level record for a record group or collection. I tried
> putting the location (full file name) in the external documents field. It
> has hyperlinked the name, but when I try to click on the link to the pdf,
> it is not opening the document.
> Do the files have to live on the same server as my ASpace instance? What
> am I doing wrong?
> Also, is there a better place to link external finding aids?
> MANY thanks!
