Dear all,

The Odisseia Research Group at the University of Minho has just  
released a new version of the Controlled Vocabulary add-on for DSpace.
Please refer to http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php? 

This patch adds a few improvements to the controlled vocabulary add- 
on currently present in DSpace:

1) The Node Schema (see [dspace]/docs/controlledvocabulary.xsd) has  
been updated to support other types of relationships and/or  
properties that are part of a true thesaurus, and now all elements in  
this structure are properly processed and displayed by the add-on.

2) The add-on recognizes thesaurus/controlled vocabularies described  
in SKOS standard schema. This vocabulary can be created according to  
the W3C recommendations and must be saved with the extension ".skos".

3) In the DC metadata fields you wish to control, it is now possible  
to configure distinct vocabularies associated to specific  
communities. You may also define one or more generic vocabularies to  
be used by default on the rest of the communities. To use this  
functionality you have to edit the file [dspace]/config/input- 
forms.xml and place a new "controlled-vocabularies" element under the  
<field> that you want to control.

This add-on was developed in the scope of the Odisseia Research Group  
  at the University of Minho. If you have any questions, please do  
not hesitate to contact us:

Best regards,
