We use DSpace for our repository so any editing to the PDFs have to be done
in Acrobat before uploading. I can add a note to the metadata in DSpace,
but I am not sure if that fulfills the permissions agreement. I was
recently hired for this position so I do not know who provided us the file
to upload in the first place. That is why I am asking if anyone else has
dealt with this since I am unsure if I can ever get the password.
