Pop-Up Cultural Advisory Notices
We are an Australian-based Esploro customer and we have asset records containing culturally sensitive information/materials. Repository staff are currently adding the notice below to these records (which at this point, are primarily theses):
"Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this thesis and associated project files, may contain the images/voices/names of people who have since passed away. "
Repository staff customise this message to include what is relevant for the asset record concerned, e.g. images and/or voices and/or names and to the type of publication.
These advice statements would be more effectively highlighted as a pop-up that would appear when the Esploro record was accessed. We are currently adding them to the Comments field which is usually hidden on first accessing the record.

This would be greatly beneficial for both back-end and front-end users of Esploro powered repositories, especially if it also shows up on the asset descriptions before the asset itself is accessed (similar to how DOI, Publisher, etc is shown on the asset label in the menus).

This is an important idea as it can be used as part of teh DEI (Diversity , Equity and Inclsuiveness) project that is being run with Ex Libris
