DSpace Use Grows at Top Global Universities

From Bram Luyten, @mire  25 of the top 50 institutions in the 2015 Academic Ranking of World Universities run the Open Source DSpace software. This uptake is a testimony to the continued success of the platform, originally developed by MIT and HP in 2002. Governed by DSpace members of the not-for-profit organization DuraSpace, and supported by an active open source ecosystem of service providers, the community is bigger than ever.
