One possible solution:
It is possible to modify the config file in DSpace so you can add item records to DSpace that do not have bitstreams associated with them. A handle will still be created for the item record.

Subject: [Dspace-general] Import metadata without items

I crosslisted this in both general and technical as I don't know which
it really belongs to.
We are planning to develop a Dspace repository for our faculty
publications. Initially, all we will have is the metadata. The plan is
to use grad assistants to acquire pdfs and research the rights for each
article or object and add these to the repository. The metadata is to
be extracted from several databases and imjested into Dspace so we at
least have a complete bibliography in one place.
Should a standard pdf, e.g., "No pdf available at this time" be added as
the bitstream object at time of creation so a handle can be created and
reserved or should the metadata be imported with no object and the
object and handle be created when the object becomes available? Or is
there another way to handle this situation?
