      Description

      The current implementation of tombstoning does not appear to show any item information in the tombstone. To extend the metaphor, it would be good to provide something along the lines of "Here lies item [title of item]", rather than a blank/generic tombstone – or at least have the option to do so.

      We implemented a local customization that does two things. First, it continues to display metadata for the item, while preventing access to the downloadable bitstreams. This alerts the requestor that they have indeed arrived at the right place. Second, it allows the administrator to choose from a menu of withdrawal messages – stored in dc.description.withdrawalreason so it's customizable after the fact – that displays in the "Files in This Item" block.

      Here are some examples in our system:

      http://deepblue.lib.umich.edu/handle/2027.42/57993

      Our standard phrases are "Removed from view by legal order." (haven't had to use that one yet!), "Removed from view by the University of Michigan," and "Removed from view at request of the author."
