  • Chris Colvard recommending REST API be defined for HD2 so that collection manager can search in Avalon using desc metadata, come up with a set of items, then take a bulk action or select an item to take a preservlation action - send list of barcodes to HD2 - results of action in HD2 could send email with results or link to HD2 system to view results
