Halliday, Jim; Konkiel, Stacy; Laherty, Jennifer
Summary
The IUScholarWorks team has successfully completed a major upgrade of the IUScholarWorks Repository software to the latest stable release, 1.8.2. Some of the new features gained in this upgrade include:  a statistics module which keeps track of how many times items in the repository are accessed; more curation tools; a configurable workflow for the user interface; richer RSS feeds; easier selection of Creative Commons Licenses; automatic virus checking of items submitted; enhanced batch metadata editing tools; and a better embargo system. Jim will discuss the process of upgrading the existing repository, and discuss some of the challenges in adapting the new DSpace codebase to our specific needs.
Jen and Stacy will highlight new and existing services which include: data curation and management with connections to the UITS Scholarly Data Archive; an embargoes policy; and new theses collections from the Jacobs School of Music and the School of Education.
