It has been a busy summer here at 4Science, with the new release of DSpace-CRIS and the ongoing development of DSpace 7. September will be even more exciting, with two important appointments, in order to share our ideas about the best way to use DSpace in different contexts.
During the last months 4Science developers released both DSpace-CRIS 5.7.0 and DSpace-CRIS 6RC2 (based on DSpace 6.2).
By Michael Guthrie, Director, KnowledgeArc The Nigerian Research and Education Network Federated Repository (NgREN) has launched a federated repository with assistance from KnowledgeArc. The new DSpace archive brings together the works from 42 different DSpace instances in the country, and provides a hub to showcase and highlight the intellectual output of Nigeria's universities.

What a great conference! The eighth annual VIVO Conference was held at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City, August 2-4. We had outstanding keynote presentations by Christina Pattuelli and Jodi Schneider, invited talks by Katy Frey, Jim Hendler, Dave Eichmann, Ying Ding, and Rebecca Bryant, as well as a featured presentation by Julia Trimmer and Damaris Murry. But there was quite a bit more – five workshops, 27 contributed presentations, and sixteen posters rounded out a very full program. Thanks to all the presenters!!
