We've had complaints from users who have found out-of-context DSpace
documents with Google searches, such as
There is, of course, a DSpace metadata record, but the Google search
retrieves the document itself with no link to the metadata record. We're
considering disallowing access to the bitstream path so that users will
not be confronted with raw documents with no metadata context, but do
not want to lose the full-text searching functionality. Has anyone found
a solution to this problem?
Thanks in advance for help.
