New Features in Archie, January 3, 2012 Release

On January 3, we upgraded Archie to the latest DSpace software release, version 1.8.1. This release includes new features and bug fixes.  We've also added some customizations requested by KUMC faculty.
Some of the more noticeable changes include:

  • Export item and collection metadata that conforms to NLM Journal Submission format. See an example of a Kansas Journal of Medicine article at http://archie.kumc.edu/metadata/handle/2271/893/nlm.xml. Find more information about submitting ejournals to PubMed at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/ejournals.html
  • RSS feeds now support iTunes podcast and publishing to iTunesU.
  • Create or edit metadata in batches.
  • Customize submission workflows.
  • Execute routine "curation tasks" across collections.
  • Improved Creative Commons licensing support.
  • Use controlled vocabularies when submitting items.
