Please Note:

Step 1

Edit the following file:

nano $HOME/source/dspace/config/dspace.cfg

Modify the "request item" settings.

See example below.

#----------------REQUEST ITEM CONFIGURATION---------------------#

# Configuration of request-item. Possible values:
# all - Anonymous users can request an item
# logged - Login is mandatory to request an item
# empty/commented out - request-copy not allowed
request.item.type = all
# Helpdesk E-mail
mail.helpdesk =
# Should all Request Copy emails go to the helpdesk instead of the item submitter?
request.item.helpdesk.override = true

#------------END REQUEST ITEM CONFIGURATION---------------------#

Step 2

Modify the following file:

nano $HOME/source/dspace/config/spring/api/requestitem.xml

Uncomment the request item bean and comment out the author email option.

See example below.
