Description

The Digital Commons software is relatively feature-rich, but as repository managers we often find ourselves thinking, "I wish I could..." This presentation outlines two relatively easy extensions of Digital Commons that use its native features in novel ways. One takes advantage of the system to manage permissions recordkeeping, and the other exploits the quarterly archive for an automatic marketing program. Attendees will discover sustainable ways to keep themselves in copyright compliance and their repositories in their users' thoughts.
