DSpace Community Advisory Team Update

DCAT charge: The DSpace Community Advisory Team (DCAT) represents the interests of repository managers and administrators across the globe and, indirectly, DSpace end users. DCAT is a permanent Working Group that advises other DSpace project governance and leadership groups (e.g., DSpace Steering Group, DSpace Product Planning Group). The Team solicits feedback through community-wide discussions, surveys, etc. to help ensure future software releases address the needs of the community. DCAT submits an annual report to the DSpace Steering group that makes the report public after review.

Breakout discussions: Possibilities and priorities for DSpace integrations and/or interoperabilities

As we look towards the possibilities for the DSpace platform beyond DSpace 7.0, we want to think about high-priority areas of integration and interoperability for DSpace (e.g. ORCID, Open Journal Systems).

After a brief introduction, we will break up into 4-5 randomly assigned groups to discuss the question of DSpace integrations.

You will have 15 minutes in your group to do the following:

  • Conduct a brief round of introductions
  •  Identify reporter to report highlights of the discussion out to the larger group.
  • Brainstorm possible DSpace integrations
  • Identify priority integrations (2-3) from your brainstorming list.

You can take notes in a Google doc that matches your Breakout Room number, linked to here


Round Robin (15 min): At the end of 15 minutes, we will reconvene and hear reports from each group.
