Thanks for responding so quickly.
I don't see in the Integrations and Comunity Projects page a reference to
what we
have in mind.

We have been using Archon and have built within in it an integrated digital
library of images
of the history of the College. Each image is contained within a "digital
library" which includes
descriptive metadata (title, physical description, content description,
creator, date, copyright
and publisher data, location of the physical source of the digital object,
These individual digital libraries are each associated with the collection
to which they pertain,
such that a given collection may contain physical boxes, folders,
audiotapes, video, photographs
and digital objects as well.

What we want is to make the digital object (JPEG, PDF, etc) viewable
together with its
metadata via AS. The digital objects themselves would be contained within
BePress, while
the physical objects would be referenced in AS. We hope not to have to
reconstruct our
whole catalog separately in BePress but to retain the data structures from
Archon as we
migrate to AS -- hence considering that we would in some fashion
be integrating BePress with AS.

At this point I don't know whether what I'm asking is trivially obvious or
basically un-doable.
Thanks for pointing me in a good direction.
