    Making DC elements hyperlinkable in viewer metedata display when you click " i " (e.g. for dc:identifier)


    1. Connect to the Mangement module and select the appropriate institution


    NOTE: This is an institution-level configuration.


    NOTE: DC element must already exist in the ingest metadata in order to display in the viewer.


    2. Go to: Home > Deposits > Advanced Configurations > Delivery XSL Files > ie.xsl


    3. Click "Edit"


    4. Locate the "<div class="width50">" section of the code


    5. Insert the following:


                            <div class="width50">
                                <xsl:when test="starts-with(., &apos;http&apos;)">
                                  <xsl:element name="a">
                                    <xsl:attribute name="href">
                                      <xsl:value-of select="." />
                                    <xsl:attribute name="style">color:blue</xsl:attribute>
                                    <xsl:value-of select="." />


    NOTE: By default the font color is white (not visible); adding the attribute name above and specifying a color makes it display.


    6. Click "Save"


    7. Navigate to the IE and click "View", then " i " to see the new hyperlinked element.
