[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Folder labels from ArchivesSpace collections

Hi all,

I'm wondering how people go about making folder labels from their
ArchivesSpace collections. We tend to include an archival object's title,
agents, etc. in center labels, and its context (collection name, call
number, series) in a label to the left.

Until now we've been using a custom EAD transformation to a PDF label
template, which is becoming internally obsolete, so we're looking for new
methods. I just posted separately asking if anyone is producing CSV exports
of all objects under a collection, which would be one approach. Personally
I use Word's Mail Merge to populate a label template from a CSV file, but
this is not particularly user-friendly. Does anyone have a neater solution
they've been using?


(I'm aware of the Container Labels download - I think this is not
applicable for this as this information isn't in the top containers, but
perhaps someone's making use of that).
