Thanks Jonathan!

You are much further on than we are, but we have experienced similar hurdles with campus support and likewise have a Digital Commons repository; I dream of cross walking in the future . . . but how to get there is a the question.

Currently, we are at the step of making the transition from a local instance to a server (with the intention to eventually “launch to the web”), and require tech guidance beyond our internal capacity so I’m wondering what arrangements you have in place to develop in dSpace? Will message you off-list for details.

I wonder if this is an opportunity for a CALI Con topic? “What’s next for repositories?” doesn’t really go with the over-arching theme but . . . just a thought for this group if there is broader interest.

We are - https://digital.lib.washington.edu/dspace-law/<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__digital.lib.washington.edu_dspace-2Dlaw_&d=DwMGaQ&c=lhMMI368wojMYNABHh1gQQ&r=M3skZgeiYp69ifQGC38sCw&m=atq5Z7WfdUx3YlNIBGeXFg3cpIVlVTpSr2IOFdjuQ7Y&s=kiJvH3eMp0OjR-9gAvoF1pPfjHBvLMyceVdeufk3_wk&e=>

I’d love to talk – and am sharing this with the group, as it might be a common issue.

We started with dSpace because of main campus support.  It is not exceptionally user-friendly and we are using Digital Commons (licensed by us) for publicizing faculty publications.

At some point these two might rejoin each other in a campus-wide next-gen open platform, but for now we have our hands full and main campus has to deal with support for petabytes of datasets.

Anyone out there creating a repository in dSpace?

Looking for help on customizations.
