You might think that an embargo function for items that can’t be made publicly available would be pretty standard in a digital library software – think publisher embargoes, theses embargoes, etc. All standard practice. Does an embargo function come built in with DSpace though? Not that I can see, and I can only find this information on Embargo on Bitstream V2 on the DSpace wiki. Very disappointing. I’m happy to be proved wrong, especially if it means there’s one less piece of code to tweak.
