    1. As an archivist managing a collection, I may receive requests from researchers to scan specific folders of materials for their use remotely.  Rather than sending these via email, Dropbox, or other service, I would like to be able to add these digital objects into ArchivesSpace at the component level.


    To avoid duplication of work, these digital objects should be paired with EAD finding aids with which they’re associated in fedora.


    What does done look like?

    Digital objects can be added to finding aids at the component level in ArchivesSpace, and these objects will be paired with EAD in fedora.




    2. As an archivist managing a collection, sometimes digitization projects for certain parts of a collection (photographs, for instance) have taken place in the past and these digital objects are being stored elsewhere as a completed project.  For these digitized projects that live in Hydra heads like DIL, Avalon, Books, etc. (at Northwestern), I would like to be able to pull those records into ArchivesSpace and have them appear, with linked digital objects, in ArchivesSpace.  This way, digital objects already in Fedora can be linked to ArchivesSpace. 


    What does done look like?

    I can pull records of digitized objects from other Hydra heads into ArchivesSpace without having to move them, i.e. the actual records can stay wherever they’re currently living.




    3. As an archivist managing a collection, Northwestern currently uses Archon.  When a collection has been fully processed and entered into Archon, the archivist is then able to click a button in Archon, labeled “Ingest EAD,” that pushes the EAD generated by Archon, as well as a MODS record, into a record in Fedora.  This way, the finding aid will appear in our finding aids portal. 


    What does done look like?

    “Ingest EAD” button in ArchivesSpace, which ingests EAD and MODS into fedora.  Adds digital provenance (PREMIS).  Record can be updated by archivist when content is added to collection.
