Reintroducing the DuraSpace Registry

The DuraSpace Registry is a community-driven database that identifies which institutions and organizations around the world use DSpace, Fedora, and VIVO. The Registry, which answers the question, “Who’s Using”, has been significantly upgraded: https://duraspace.org/registry/ The new Registry includes a map view of installations and is viewable by project.

DuraSpace is in the ongoing process of ensuring that the data in the Registry is current. In 2018 there are more than 2,900 installations registered worldwide. We need your help in order to update this valuable tool as we learn more about who is using our open source software, how they are using it, and how their use case may be similar to yours. Our aim is to make this information widely available to our worldwide community.

The information available in the registry is limited to what has been provided by an institution/organization either by registering or through the OpenDOAR listing. In order to maximize the usefulness of the registry it is important for our users to register their instance to ensure that their information is up-to-date.

Please take a moment to see if your organization’s repository or VIVO installation is listed in the registry. If not, let us know that you are using DSpace, Fedora or VIVO by sharing information about the software you’re using through the registry. If you find your information is outdated, please use this form: https://duraspace.org/registry/register-your-site/ to tell us what’s new, or contact Kristi Searle to update your information.
