Hi Paul and everyone

There's also this plugin that I maintain that allows you to print file labels from the browser. It requires​ knowing some CSS to specify the label dimensions, but it does allow you to print file and/or container labels: https://github.com/dartmouth-dltg/container_management_labels Technically there's no reason you couldn't print any AO level label with the plugin, though in practice I've only tested/done it with file level AOs.

I haven’t tried this yet but the documentation makes it look promising:  https://files.library.northwestern.edu/public/ArchiveLabels/

Subject: [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).
