trying to find pdf file from upload.

I would like to make a change to my DSpace instance.  This is what I want to do.

When a user uploads a creative commons license for an item with a pdf
file via the user interface, I would like to append a page to the pdf
file with some bib information and a cc logo indicating the license.

I am looking for the code that actually puts the pdf file in the asset
store.  I see that UploadStep.java uploads the file, but I can't
append the cc license yet because the user has not chosen it at this
point, so I need the code that takes the file and stores it in the
assetstore, so I can append then.

Many thanks!
Jose

Important message from Google Scholar team - DSpace URL Redirects Issue

Hi all,

I'm forwarding on this message from Darcy Dapra at Google Scholar. If there are any questions or concerns, feel free to ask on this list. If we cannot answer them, we'll make sure to forward them on to the Google Scholar team for additional feedback.

- Tim

===================================

Hello!  I manage partnerships for Google Scholar. Among other things, I liaise with institutional repositories to help ensure that their collections are well-indexed in Google Scholar. For this, I have had opportunity to work with colleagues at DuraSpace (Hi Tim!) as well as at many universities.

Recently, web spam analyses here at Google have come across a DSpace customization/extension that has had the unfortunate side-effect of blocking indexing of full-text articles/theses. This extension redirected user clicks on bitstream URLs to the publications' landing pages. Based on conversations with some of the affected repositories, I understand that the goal of the redirection is to facilitate analytics for bitstream views. However, such redirection breaks the "what-you-see-is-what-we-index" model that web search services use and causes such URLs to be marked as cloaking/spam.

Colleagues at Edinburgh, University of Illinois and several other institutions have been really helpful in removing these redirects quickly from the repositories they manage. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them. We on the Scholar team have worked with web search folks here to ensure that these collections have been re-included as soon as possible.

If your repository includes either the earlier version of this extension or other code that redirects users from bitstream URLs to landing page URLs, I strongly recommend removing/disabling such redirects to avoid a similar situation.  Finally, we've worked with Tim to update the official DSpace indexing recommendations to include this issue.

Many thanks,

Darcy

how to display view statistics beyond 7 months?

DSpace 3.1 JSP

Is there a default setting in DSpace to limit the display of "View Statistics" at the bottom of each item to 7 months' worth only? If so, how can we change that to allow for displaying every month, that is, from the very beginning?

See an example at: http://d-commons.d.umn.edu/handle/10792/126/statistics
That item was first deposited in 2010 but only the last 7 months' stats are viewable by the public.

Thanks,

Shixing

Re: Greeks not supported

I guess Windows XP is not a problem. See some info here:
https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSDOC4x/Installing+DSpace

As far as the add-on concerns, I would suggest to try to re-write it for the
newest version of DSpace. It may be already included in the core DSpace
software as well. Have you checked it?

Hello Kostas,
Thank you for replying.
First of all, I'm working on Windows XP so I'm not sure whether I can
actually use the latest release.
Secondly, I have to test a specific add-on created in the past for this
specific release (1.6.8).

Greetings,

Hello,
I have set up DSpace (1.6.8 version)  running locally on my computer in
order to check some issues before  installation for public use.
I want to use controlled vocabularies and it works fine as long as the
default xml files are loaded. But if I change a subject word in srsc.xml
file, for example turn it to Greek word, it seems that the file is no longer
readable.

I copy part of the srsc.xml text to make my self clear.. 
For example I change the following text :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<node id="ResearchSubjectCategories" label="Research Subject Categories">
	<isComposedBy>
		<node id="SCB11" label="HUMANITIES and RELIGION">

<node id="ResearchSubjectCategories" label="Research Subject Categories">
	<isComposedBy>

Reconverting PDF's in assetstore to PDF/A

Hi, is it possible to reconvert PDF-documents that are already in the 
assetstore to the PDF/A format in place? We would use a third party tool 
to convert all of our PDF-documents stored in dspace to PDF/A's to 
better be in compliance with national archive rules. Is this possible to 
do in dspace without violating any integrity checks in place (file 
checksums or similar)? In effect we would replace the original PDF 
document in the assetstore with a PDF/A version of the same.

Regards

About "use-cases"

Sorry for the cross-posting.

Hi All

For the meeting tonight, I would like to comment about "use-cases".

There are too many to cover, I would prefer that resources are concentrated on enabling a dynamic "use-case" framework.


So in order to build roads, I suggest some core services as follows:

For users
=======
1. Authentication (LDAP etc..). See: https://shiro.apache.org
2. Authorisation using "roles" of users with "object" permissions.

Repository specific input/output
========================
1. OAI
2. SWORD

Repository reporting (statistics)
========================
1. ORCID
2. Altmetrics
3. Elastic Search

Web Service for 3rd Parties
=====================
RESTful API

With the above core services (roads) it should be possible to enable most use cases (stagecoaches).

We cannot predict all the use cases (stagecoaches) to be built, but we can support reliable core services (roads).

Re: Free web tool for analyzing DSpace SEO analysis

Hi,

> we have deployed a prototype of a free tool that can analyze a few SEO
> properties for your DSpace repository. More precisely, the tool can take a
> look at your robots.txt file to see if there potential problems.

Having just upgraded to v4.1 and done my best to carry out SEO, I thought I'd have a look at this out of
curiosity and have a couple of questions:

- the Itemcount for our repository shows as 7536 items, but the actual number of items in our repository is
8496 - any ideas where the discrepancy is creeping in? The sitemap referenced from our robots.txt lists
8626 objects (which includes Items along with Community and Collection Homepages) so I don't think it is
the case that the Itemcount is being (correctly?) generated from the sitemap referenced in robots.txt
(or is it?!) . . . .

- I wanted to see the Extended Analysis but it is asking for an email address with the same domain as our
repository - as our repository is dspace.stir.ac.uk I thought it would be OK with
michael.white@... but I've not received anything as yet (and
the email didn't appear to have been Junked either) - should I have received anything, or is that email
domain not acceptable?

- the response time for the homepage of my repository is generally being reported at around 2000
milliseconds (I tried it a few times :-)), but the text on that page says some DSpace sites can serve pages in
under 100ms:

"The faster your site is, the better. Some DSpaces can serve pages under 100ms. If you experience
substantially slower loading times you may need to optimize."

I didn't think of our repository as slow, but should I (i.e. does 2000 milliseconds constitute a
"substantially slower loading time")? And if so, any thoughts why our repository is 20 times slower than
the potential value noted on that page (yes, I appreciate this is "why is my bit of string longer than yours"
type question ;-) )? Perhaps it is just a "geographical" issue (I'm guessing the analysis is being done
stateside, so repositories on this side of the pond might expect longer response times?)? Or maybe, in
certain configurations, DSpace just runs faster/slower (e.g. we are using JSPUI with Apache in front of
Tomcat along with Postgres, all on the same Virtual Linux box) . . . ? And, if relevant, what is the
optimization that is being alluded to in the text on that page?

Thanks in advance for any insights anyone might have.

Cheers,

Mike

Lucene causes Dspace to crash

Hello,
We’re running Dspace 3.2 with XMLUI. Our production instance recently crashed with a segmentation fault. According to the fatal error report generated by the JVM, it appears to have been caused by lucene while reading from the search indexes (The problematic frame is org.apache.lucene.index.SementTermPositions.skipPositions(), I’ll spare you the thread dump). Has anyone here experiences anything similar before. I’m wondering if some bit of the search index has been corrupted, or if this is just a freak accident.
Thanks,
Seth
