Story

In SIdora, the researchers interface that is developed in Islandora on top of Fedora, researchers are the official "owners" of the objects that they create in the repository. This is owner in the Fedora object attribute sense. We interpret owner to mean the person who sets the policies. In SIdora, researchers can build large graphs of related objects they need to be able to selectively restrict the ones that they want kept private by setting the policy on the object, exposing them where they like by making them public.

  1. The framework for this use case is in place as of 4.0-Alpha-4, but an implementation would still need to be written to set the creator of an object as its "owner" and confer certain access rights based on that information. This implementation need not reside at the Fedora level - it could be be implemented within a different application that communicates with Fedora (e.g. Islandora or Hydra).
