"The rest of the documents show up as "empty boxes" when the archive is publicly accessed. These boxes (known as cabinets in Documentum) contain metadata about what lies inside. The hope is that when a JFK researcher looks into a given box and sees that it is empty (i.e. the archivists have not scanned the documents from a given box), they will be able to request that scanning occur. This feature, when implemented, would guide the archivists in their scanning activity going forward."

That's a cool feature. The producer-consumer relationship at its finest.
