Title (Goal)Manual Submission of New Items
Primary ActorHuman
Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)

Users submit new Items by completing a workflow process. Workflow process allows for the creation of descriptive metadata, upload of files and agreement to licensing terms.


  1. Survey Comment: Third-party licensing (where the person who deposits the item is NOT the person who should click through the license) is also a major pain point. I worked one place where I had to get license sign-offs ON PAPER. This should be unnecessary.

  2. This seems to be a "catch all" use case around supporting deposit in general. For more details on specific deposit-related Use Cases see the "uc-deposit" label
