      Description

      The idea of a "Private Item" originated prior to "Embargo Policies" and "Access Controlled Search and Browse" to provide the ability to exclude Items from being found in Search, Browse or OAI. However, it is often the case the users misinterpret the meaning of "Private" in this case to mean "Restricted Access", resulting in the need to regularly clarify the feature.

      Recommendation is to change terminology from "Make Item Private" to "Exclude from Search and Browse" and update documentation to reflect this is not really an Item state but a Search/Browse configuration setting.
