Good morning,

We've just linked our ArchivesSpace instance to our website and are trying to 
move our users away from Archon. There's one major hurdle. We migrated from 
Archon to ArchivesSpace with the first migration tool, and our only container 
instances are nonsensical records created by the import.  In most cases, our 
intellectual description matches up with the  physical location, which means if 
I can see the series number and folder number I can find the item. I'm hoping 
to find out whether we can somehow force the public interface to display the 
component unique identifiers which do not appear when I look at finding aids in 
the public interface (or in the staff interface without viewing the particular 

It's going to be quite some time before I can modify every finding aid and add 
containers, so I'm hoping in the meantime there is a temporary fix that doesn't 
require me logging into the staff interface (or going back to Archon) every 
time a patron requests something. I wonder whether other Archon users are 
having this problem, and would welcome any suggestions. Thank you!
