I'm am looking for assistance in setting up embargo on our new Dspace 1.7.1.  Our institution will allow an embargo of two years on ETD material, however I want to be flexible and provide other embargo options as well (e.g. 6 months, 12 months, 18 months, 24 months, etc).  We also may have a need for an indefinite embargo as well. 

I understand that I'm supposed to configure embargo to use existing or custom metadata fields, however I'm not sure which is the best approach.  I was curious if other institutions could share how they implemented embargo?
