ASpace DAO 'xlink:audience' fails validation on OAC


Login to join this discussion, or follow the forum conversation!

ArchivesSpace EAD exports that include digital objects currently fail the OAC ingest process.


The ArchivesSpace EAD export for digital objects currently reads as such:

<dao audience="internal" xlink:actuate="none" xlink:audience="external"
              xlink:href="http://digitalassets.ynhsc.edu/ms296_001.tif " xlink:show="none"
              xlink:title="Watercolor of Brassie fly nymph (fishing fly)" xlink:type="simple">
              <daodesc>
                <p>Watercolor of Brassie fly nymph (fishing fly)</p>
              </daodesc>
            </dao>


'xlink:audience' is not valid. This is a known issue in the ASpace EAD export and it seems they are currently gathering information to address this fix. For details, please see: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/ANW-805?oldIssueView=true


Please feel free to upvote the ticket, or provide additional feedback in the ticket.

In the meantime, the recommended workaround is a manual correction in the XML.

Change:
xlink:audience="external"

to:
audience="external"

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!
