      Description

      The latter use is what I had in mind.

      But also just for administrative use within our own team. I am happy to let
      a whole range of staff export metadata, but don't necessarily want them to
      import that data.

      It would also support the requests, which I expect to see increase in the
      future, to provide a list of publications for a departing academic who then
      wants to load data into the repository of their new institution.

      Cheers,

      non-administrators

      Hi Vanessa,

      At present this is not supported - metadata export and import is restricted
      to system administrators. Adding the ability for for 'community
      adminsitrators' to export the metadata should be relatively easy.

      For what reason do you want to export the data? If it is for them to export
      metadata, edit it, then send it to you for re-upload? Or is it for them to
      have a copy of the data for use in other systems, perhaps web pages?

      Thanks,

      Hi All,

      Sending this again as I got no replies last time. From that I am assuming
      I am asking too much!!!

      I am running DSpace 1.6 and making good use of the metadata export and
      Import metadata functions to perform batch updates to records.

      What I'd like to offer to some trusted users (i.e. University of Adelaide
      staff) is the ability to use the function of Export Metadata, but not to
      have access to the other administrator functions of Import metadata, editing
      records, creating communities etc.

      Can I exercise this level of control?

      It would be great to offer to researchers the ability to export metadata
      for their own publications or for school admin staff to do so for their
      authors.

      Cheers,
