We are also experiencing crashes when exporting PDFs for large collections. Happy to contribute any notes or examples if that's helpful!

 Thanks for mobilizing on this! One other issue we have: Crashing PDFs. We have a number of very large collections (20K archival objects or more) that have crashed the entire system when we try to print PDFs, I believe both staff side and public PDFs.

	Good Morning, 

	I am trying to gather more data to put in a pull request, about a group of issues that I have come across stemming from having very large collections. 

	For example: 
	* A collection too large that the EAD will not download, or partial downloads 
	* Custom Reports will not cover all records even when using the largest setting 
	* Location Finder does not work for area search 
	I was hoping to find other people who have had these issues or other issues that they know/assume are being caused by a collection being overly large. IF that is you please respond or reach out to me at kate.f.herbert at maine.gov (mailto:kate.f.herbert at maine.gov)
