December 14: Member Discussion – ArchivesSpace Digital Objects Module
ArchivesSpace 3.3.1 is now available. This patch release fixes a bug when using default values that was introduced by 3.3.0 and adds some missing labels. People who haven’t already upgraded to 3.3.0 should go directly to this release when they do upgrade, and we recommend upgrading to 3.3.1 if you have already upgraded to 3.3.0 and use or plan to use default values for record creation.
More information about what’s in the release and the link to download it are at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases/tag/v3.3.1. Information on upgrading to a new version of ArchivesSpace is available at https://archivesspace.github.io/tech-docs/administration/upgrading.html.
If you have questions or need any assistance, please let us know. A special thanks to our Registered Service Providers, Atlas Systems for identifying the default values issue and LYRASIS Digital Technology Services for the quick submission of a fix to it.

Integrations Survey now OPEN
[posted on behalf of the Integrations sub-team of the Technical Advisory Council (TAC)]
You are invited to partake in a NEW online survey starting August 24th, in conjunction with the 2022 ArchivesSpace Member Forum. It will remain open until November 30th.
Click here to complete the 2022 Integrations Survey.
The survey’s intended purpose is to gather updated and new information about known and available integrations with ArchivesSpace and provide a centralized listing which will include the intended purpose(s), links to resources and other information, when available. The Integrations sub-team plans to launch this survey on an annual or biennial basis to ensure the information is up to date.
Users, administrators, and developers are encouraged to participate. You do not need to be a member institution to complete this survey. If you filled out a previous survey a few years ago, please do not hesitate to participate as your information may have changed and this is a newly designed survey.
Data collected will be compiled and made available on the Integrations Confluence pages, which are publicly accessible. Updates to the pages are ongoing and some content may still change.
*If you are providing information about an integration, please note you will be asked for links to user and technical documentation (if publicly available), developer sites, and/or contact information. You may want to gather that information before starting this survey.
Your participation will help the greater community and is highly anticipated and appreciated. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out by emailing ArchivesSpaceHome@lyrasis.org with the subject heading, “2022 Integrations Survey”.
