The DSpace Community held 3 webinars in Nov 2022: "Using DSpace 7.4", "Upgrading to DSpace 7.4", and "Developing on DSpace 7.4". We had 3000+ registrations and over 1400 DSpace members and users attended the live sessions. 

Questions were answered live and also gathered in a public Q&A document (see PDF download below).  All answers were gathered into that same document.

Recordings of these sessions were also posted to the DSpace website at https://dspace.lyrasis.org/2022/11/21/dspace-7-4-webinar-recordings-now-available/
