Please note: This feature was released with DSpace version 4.0 and therefore not fully tried and tested.

You apply this feature at your own risk.


The request a copy functionality was added to DSpace as a measure to facilitate access in those cases when uploaded content can not be openly shared with the entire world immediately after submission into DSpace. It gives users an efficient way to request access to the original submitter of the item, who can approve this access with the click of a button. This practice complies with most applicable policies as the submitter interacts directly with the requester on a case by case basis.


Edit the dspace.cfg file and 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 =

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