This presentation will briefly describe the modifications to the DSpace repository software to selectively restrict access to theses without a license agreement, adding a banner display message for restricted items, and creating a linked form for copyright holders to grant permission for theses to be made available open access. Workflows will be discussed including scripts to convert MARC records into Dublin Core metadata and the packaging of metadata and image files into DSpace submission information packages (SIP) for batch loading into DSpace. Post ingestion metadata editing and controlled vocabulary management will also be discussed.
