Relationship needs to be one to many (one accession to one or many boxes or physical objects). The current ICA-AtoM accession template offers "location information" field, but this does not allow for printing a box location list report. This was requested by more than one User.

Is it necessary to have physical storage linked from the accession and description interfaces? I'm not an archivist, so I'm not sure how this ties in with how an accession becomes part of the archival holdings. Should the physical location information be "transferred" to the descriptive record once a description is created?

My main concern is avoiding duplicate or contradictory information about physical storage in the accession and descriptive records.
