Hi Alexander,


I have opened a feature request for this (and for hiding the data in the ‘full item view’ which will also be an issue for you):

Subject: [Dspace-general] restricting metadata for OAI queries


Dear DSpacers,


I have just discovered that DSpace does not allow you to natively restrict which fields get exposed during an OAI-PMH query. I’ve looked at the past discussions on the list but not seen any really useful solution. Has anyone found a way around this that does not involve setting embargoes?


I find it difficult to believe that all data is seen as public as specified in Chapter 9.2 of the documentation on 1.5.1 … L


Thanks for all replies,
