      Description

      Some institutions don't want to display the Request Copy button for all item types. The improvement would be a configuration option, which, if turned on, would display the Request Copy button only for documents with a specified values of a metadata field.

      e,g,:
      request.item.dc.type = info:eu-repo/semantics/bachelorThesis, \
      info:eu-repo/semantics/masterThesis, \
      info:eu-repo/semantics/doctoralThesis

      If this configuration property is present, the button will be displayed only for theses.

      In addition, it makes sense to add the request button for metadata-only items (based on a metadata value as described above), too, because there are cases where there is
      a) a metadata-only record in DSpace for a physical item
      b) during digitization, metadata records are available first and digital objects added gradually
      c) metadata-only item, but a digital copy might be available outside of DSpace (e.g. via ILL, in a different system, ...)
      d) other cases?
