Dig Into the Registry of DSpace and Fedora Project Repositories

Winchester, MA  As the number of DuraSpace project repositories grows–in January 2014 there are more than 1,600 registered worldwide–the desire to learn more about them–where are they, how they are accessed online, what type of content they hold, software versions, specializations etc.–also increases. Answers to these and other questions can lead to greater connections among institutions and repository instances with similar goals and interests.
