Regarding Ranking of Repositories

Dear colleagues,

As editor of the Ranking Web of Repositories I published the referred
info in order to open debate about issues that are, in my humble
opinion, very concerning for the future of repositories. As my email address
is clearly stated in the webpage, I do not understand why you decided
not consider my position and explanations in this debate.

I am going to answer the specific points introduced by Mark Wood and,
of course, I am open not only to further discussions but to modify my
proposals accordingly.

Point 4. In many academic institutions the access to ports other than
standards is forbidden due to security reasons. If you use other ones, the
contents are invisible to the people accesing from other universities.

dc.creator

In previous DSpace versions dc.creator was reserved for the system. 

I assume because of some type of hard coding feature in OAI module. From XOAI on, all of this is outdated, isnt'ít? I don't know if is there some other consideration to take in account before starting to include creator in input-forms.

Regards
German 

PD: In metadata registry, creator continues appearing as "Do not use; only for harvested metadata.". Time to change it?

OAI baseURL "incorrect" . . .

Hi,

I was just checking the OAI-PMH output of my new DSpace v4.1 PROD system against the OAI-PMH validator and
was surprised to find the validation had failed due to a "baseURL mismatch", even though it had all been
lovely when I tested it previously on my DEV system.

[FAIL] baseURL supplied 'http://dspace.stir.ac.uk/oai/request' does not match the baseURL in the
Identify response 'http://localhost:8080/oai/request'.

- and they are quite right (obviously!) - when accessing
http://dspace.stir.ac.uk/oai/request?verb=Identify, I see :

    <request verb="Identify">http://localhost:8080/oai/request</request>
    <Identify>
        <repositoryName>STORRE</repositoryName>
        <baseURL>http://localhost:8080/oai/request</baseURL>
...

But this all looks OK in my DEV system (http://dspace4dev.stir.ac.uk:8080/oai/request?verb=Identify):

    <request verb="Identify">http://dspace4dev.stir.ac.uk:8080/oai/request</request>
    <Identify>
        <repositoryName>STORRE (v4 DEV)</repositoryName>
        <baseURL>http://dspace4dev.stir.ac.uk:8080/oai/request</baseURL>

I've checked through the various config files, and I can't see any difference (or any unexpected
references to localhost) - the main difference between the systems is that I'm going straight to Tomcat on
port 8080 in my DEV environment and my sys admin colleague has stuck Apache in front of Tomcat for our PROD
system - I'll also add that, in order to validate our DEV system, my sys admin colleague installed the
reverse proxy "pound" so that we could make the DEV system visible from off campus on port 80, and the
OAI-PMH output of my DEV system also validated correctly through that route. 

I've tried clearing the OAI cache and rebuilding the index, but no joy so far . . .

I also did a search for "localhost" in all the config files to see if I could see where this might be creeping
in, but, again, no joy . . .

So, does anyone have any thoughts on where this reference to localhost could be creeping in? Is the
"baseURL" taken from config somewhere (where?), or assumed from the URL used to access the OAI interface
(which Apache may be mangling)? Any suggestions of anything else to change/investigate?

Given this works OK in DEV and the configs appear to be the same (or equivalent) in all the key places (as far as
I can tell), I'm wondering if Apache is to blame for this? But I'd obviously like to eliminate DSpace config
as a suspect before I go back to my sys admin colleague . . .

Any thoughts, insights or pointers would be welcome :-)

Cheers,

Mike

DSpace Sword Client anyone?

With apologies for cross-posting.

Hi all,

Unfortunately the DSpace Sword Client feature
(https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSDOC4x/SWORDv1+Client) has an unsupported dependency,
Apache Httpclient (http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/). The practical choices are to leave the
dependency in place knowing that it is past 'end of life', or remove/deprecate the Sword Client feature.
To enable us to make the best decision could you please let me know if you make use of the Sword Client.

Thanks, Robin.

Tomcat takes forever

I have installed DSpace 4.2 through upgrade from 3.1 and also with a 
fresh install. Both times when I copied the webapps inside Tomcat 
installation, Tomcat stops rensponding and loading takes forever. If I 
delete the sword, swordv2 and xmlui folders, the jspui that I want to 
use works fine. What should cause this bug?
System: Windows 2008 R2 Standard, Apache Tomcat 8, Apache Ant 1.9.4, 
Apache Maven 3.2.2, PostgreSQL 9.2, JDK 1.7.0_65 with JRE 7

Thanks,
John

Request a copy

Hi all,

DSpace version: 4.1
UI: JSP
Servlet container: Tomcat 7
Server: RHEL 6.5 64-bit
Java: OpenJDK 1.7

Is it possible to have the "Request a copy" button send to a DSpace administrator email address only, rather
than to the item owner? If so, where would I configure/code/hack this?

Thanks,
Gary

IMPORTANT NEWS: Important Info for Future Editions | Ranking Web of Repositories

The Ranking is also a powerful tool for penalizing bad practices, with especial emphasis in the awful naming proposals by software developers that ignore librarian traditions and in many ways are going against intellectual rights of depositing authors.

We truly believe the lengthy and useless addresses coined for the repository items have a negative impact in their web visibility and affect the authors will to deposit as it makes difficult the citation of full texts in future papers.

​Hi All
Sorry for the cross-posting​

​How will this affect DSpace installations?​

​Regards

Subject: How to move the view statisitcs link

 

Dear all,

 

I am running dspace 3.2 xmlui. I have enabled the statistics and all is fine. However, I would like to move  “view statistics” link that appears on every items page, so that it is placed side by side with the  “show full item record link”. Any hints /ideas and workarounds?
