Single IR embargo drives ProQuest embargo restrictions
As a manager of an IR, I would like to have students to be presented with a single embargo option that would set the embargo for ProQuest and the IR publishing to be the same. This would be offered as a single IR embargo option that would drive the ProQuest embargo settings automatically.

I don't know if this is an option that would work for you, but my institution just removed the IR embargo from the list of options, and we just use the requested PQ as the IR embargo as well. If they don't want their work to appear on Proquest, a restricted database, we think it's safe to assume they don't want it on an open-access database either.
