DSpace is an open source software package that provides the tools for management of digital assets, and is commonly used as the basis for institutional repositories.
Over 1100 organizations currently use the DSpace software in a production or project environment. The most common use is by research libraries as an institutional repository, however there are many organizations using the software to host and manage subject based repositories, dataset repositories or media based repositories. It is free and easy to install "out of the box" and completely customizable to fit the needs of any organization. For more information about DSpace, see our main DSpace page.
There are numerous examples of Fedora (Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture) being used for digital collections, e-research, digital libraries, archives, digital preservation, institutional repositories, open access publishing, document management, digital asset management, and more. For more information about Fedora, see our main Fedora page.
DSpace and Fedora are sustained and improved by DuraSpace.
To address and explore issues in this area, EIFL-FOSS and EIFL-OA organised a Themed Week on DSpace and Fedora including a free online workshop: "Open Access Repositories with DSpace and Fedora".
The workshop was supported by an open access wiki for Questions and Answers about DSpace and Fedora. If you have any questions about DSpace and Fedora please add them to the wiki
