Add a new metadatafield



  1. Login as a DSpace Administrator and visit the DSpace Administration user interface (http://web-address-to-my-dspace/dspace-admin)
  2. Click on the "Metadata Registry" in order to see all current metadata schemas within DSpace. Then, click on the namespace of the schema to add a field to that particular schema.
  3. At the bottom of the page, you will find the Add Metadata Field form, where you can specify an "element", "qualifier", and "scope note" for the new metadata field. Only the "element" is required. Click "Add New" to add the new field.
  4. The new metadata field is now added to the underlying database as a member of the current metadata schema. If you wish, you can now make this field searchable (see Modify search fields ), add this field to the submission forms(see Alter submission input forms ), and/or display this field in the item display (see Change displayed item metadata ).
