That certainly looks useful.

I would like a definite view on the relationships of an ISIL to an Archon…something I never managed to ascertain when I tried a few years ago. We only have one ISIL code used on the Hub (instead of an Archon code), but many places have both. 

e.g. Glasgow School of Art: GB-StGlSA / GB-1694. 

In the Archives Portal Europe I’ve ended up saying the Archon is an ISIL code (I think France did that too) because otherwise APE wouldn’t use the Archon code for the identifier and would make up a random one, which makes no sense at all. 

…anyway, maybe I’m going off topic….

cheers,
Jane.
