Access the Development Site

A development instance of MIT ArchivesSpace is available for testing purposes. Data in the development instance has to be refreshed manually and therefore may not always match the most up-to-date data in the production instance. 

API Updates

The ArchivesSpace API enables generating reports of ArchivesSpace data and making batch updates. The Digital Library Services procedure for running updates on production data is detailed in the Communication for Production API Updates document.
