I’m curious to find out how other DSpace members are managing their workflow. We are considering not using the built-in DSpace workflow (for various reasons I will not detail here). The thinking is that we will batch import groups of items instead of doing one at a time.


We have students who can write the basic metadata, and a digital content specialist who writes the more complex metadata such as abstract/keyword information.


I would like to know if anyone else has a similar situation where two or more people are writing metadata without using the DSpace workflow – and if you are in that situation, can you describe your workflow to me? I’m trying to figure out the best arrangement.


Thanks in advance!
