Add source-name field to archival record Admin area in edit template
|Target version:||Release 2.4.0|
|Google Code Legacy ID:||Tested version:|
With all our new import update options, the user will need a better view of what source-names previously imported records were set with. To facilitate this, Dan and I discussed that maybe if the user is logged in / viewing an archival record, that in the administrative section of that record we can also display any source-names in the keymap associated with that record.

After looking at the UI, and thinking about maintaining standards compliance, I'm going to suggest we add this to the Administration area of the archival description edit templates, rather than the view page. I've updated the title of this issue to better reflect that.
The only place to put this in the view page template would be the control area - but while we've accidentally deviated from the standards somewhat due to early ICA-AtoM development, this is still generally following the standards, included in import/exports, and I'm hesitant to add an AtoM-specific field here. We could potentially add something to the context menu, but there's a lot going on there already, and one more think to check for visibility before loading adds minor performance degradation over time - this way we avoid that problem, and don't end up awkwardly mixing information types.
I'm attaching a crude wireframe of what I'm thinking. It's less convenient for users to have it in the Admin page (so they have to enter edit mode to see the data), but I can't think of a better place to put it, and i'm hoping that as time goes forward, the need for this on an individual basis is less as workflows change to accommodate the new functionality.
Let me know if you have other questions!

Ready for code review.
Screen shots attached show Admin area for record with an associated keymap record, and one showing Admin area when there are no assoc keymap records.

Note for docs: when importing via the UI, there's no way to set the source name during import - so by default, AtoM will use the filename of your CSV. Source name appears in the Admin area for files that have been imported - e.g. only visible a) if the file was imported, and b) if you are logged in and viewing the record in edit mode.
