This is great news! I have just updated the Rockefeller Archive Center's
implementation of Schema.org terms to include the ArchiveComponent and
ArchiveOrganization types, as well as the holdingArchive and materialExtent
properties. We're also in the process of speccing out a new discovery
system, so I've added these updates to the requirements for that project.
