Add ability to associate accessions with physical storage
|Target version:||Release 2.6.0|
|Google Code Legacy ID:||Tested version:|
This enhancement is part of an ongoing series of tasks designed to start implementing basic support for elements of the Canadian Archival Accession Information Standard (CAAIS ) in AtoM.
This particular enhancement will help implement support for CAAIS element 4.1, on Storage Locations. The implementation guidelines state:
Indicate the physical and/or digital location(s) within the repository in which the accessioned material is stored. Since accessioning represents establishing preliminary control of the records, it is possible that its location may change during the accession process. If this is the case, until the records have a permanent storage location, the accession location would be considered preliminary. Storage locations are based on the in-house practices of each repository.
This element is optional and repeatable.
AtoM's accession module already has a free-text location information field. However, this feature will enhance the existing functionality by adding the ability to associate physical storage locations in AtoM with an accession record. This linking ability will be a M:M relation - many containers can be related to a single accession, and many accessions can be related to a container.
The existing free-text field will be kept, to preserve legacy user data and to add more free-text information on storage location.
