The open source DSpace digital repository project initially developed by MIT and HP has reached the one-year mark. The project recently achieved a major milestone in hosting the first ever DSpace Federation user group meeting in Cambridge, Massachusetts, this past March.
This briefing will report on the outcomes of the Federation meeting related to the development of institutional repositories and the DSpace platform world-wide, and will report on the progress and experiences of two institutions that are early adopters of DSpace – Cornell University and the University of Rochester – as they complete their first year of implementation.
