Austin, TX  The peak of summer is also the mid-point in the annual DuraSpace Membership Campaign. Many thanks to those in our community who have become 2016 DuraSpace Members. We are pleased to report that we are within reach of our Membership Campaign goal of $1,250,000. Financial contributions come from our members, registered service providers and our corporate sponsors. Members have so far contributed $838,750 toward the goal with 102 unique members joining DuraSpace in the vital effort to provide technical leadership, sustainability planning, fundraising, community development, marketing and communications, collaborations and strategic partnerships and administration to the DSpace, Fedora and VIVO projects.

Your financial support is critical at this time. Without it, we will be unable to continue to advance the DSpace, Fedora and VIVO Projects and meet the community’s goals for 2016, including:

  • DSpace

    • Design and develop a single, unified DSpace UI based on a Javascript framework

    • Advance progress on milestones documented in the DSpace Roadmap

    • Increase participation of global DSpace users by partnering with international projects and organizations

  • Fedora

    • Support for software migrations

    • Domestic and International Fedora 4 workshops

    • Broader adoption and compatibility with front-end interfaces from Hydra, Islandora, and other custom applications

  • VIVO

    • Release of VIVO 1.10 with improved presentation, data acquisition and data management tools

    • Development of a VIVO training program

    • New capabilities for supporting the assessment of research impact

  • Strategic initiatives

    • Continued collaboration and leadership on SHARE and DPN working groups to make research outputs discoverable and to provide dark, archival preservation for the scholarly and cultural heritage records.

    • Provide additional DSpace, Fedora, and VIVO training to their user communities

Your membership dollars can be directed specifically to any of our projects, or to the general fund. Join us in this critical mission by becoming a DuraSpace member.
