  1. Ideas for future meetings from attendees:

    • DSpace 7 update
    • Upgrading DSpace
    • Statistics
      • Usage data for collections
      • SOLR stats don't show downloads for a collection
    • Authority control
    • Handling different versions 
      • e.g., two items - preprint and published version
      • Unpaywall - item type includes version information
    1. Adding Authority Control (in general + specifically for ORCID) to the list of future topics

  2. Community and Collection Statistics Examples: (Atmire module) (SOLR query based on Terry Brady's SOLR query tutorial, adds cumulative file downloads for a community to the community statistics page. See also,

  3. Unpaywall expects in OAI-PMH output, the version type in the  item type,
, using Driver versions. Repositories need to apply to be harvested.

  4. Oh no is the meeting finished?! Sorry, hadn't noticed the time change. I was in a different meeting for the last hour anyway.
