From Ronnee L. Francis, Digital Collections Archivist, Vanderbilt University, on behalf of the The DSpace Global Outreach Committee
The DSpace Global Outreach Committee is updating the “Who’s Using DSpace” Registry, the most popular page on the DSpace website. Our goal is to keep everyone’s repository information updated to help facilitate connections between users and to foster collaborations in the future.
Please take a minute to review your current registry information in “Who’s Using DSpace”. If you have recently upgraded to a recent DSpace version or would like add other information upgrade an existing registry here. If you are not able to find your repository in “Who’s Using DSpace”, register here.
The “Who’s Using DSpace” is a great way to strengthen DSpace community networking. Members of the DSpace community can now search the database to discover other institutions which have similar repositories, environments or interests to their own. Members can see, for example, who is using which version of DSpace, what kind of customizations they’ve done, and what kind of content they store. Users can use a faceted browse to find institutions that meet specific criteria and perform open text searches on the entire registry.
Remember, it may take up to a week for your changes to appear in “Who’s Using DSpace”. We hope to have as many repositories updated as possible for the Open Repositories 2010 conference in Spain.
