A standard distribution of Manakin/DSpace includes four "core" aspects:
- *Artifact Browser* The Artifact Browser Aspect is responsible for browsing communities, collections, items and bitstreams, viewing an individual item and searching the repository.
- *E-Person* The E-Person Aspect is responsible for logging in, logging out, registering new users, dealing with forgotten passwords, editing profiles and changing passwords.
- *Submission* The Submission Aspect is responsible for submitting new items to DSpace, determining the workflow process and ingesting the new items into the DSpace repository.
- *Administrative* The Administrative Aspect is responsible for administrating DSpace, such as creating, modifying and removing all communities, collections, e-persons, groups, registries and authorizations.
Globally static content can be placed in the _\[dspace-source\]/dspace/modules/xmlui/src/main/webapp/static/_ directory. By default this directory only contains the default _robots.txt_ file, which provides helpful site information to web spiders/crawlers. However, you may also add static HTML (_\*.html_) content to this directory, as needed for your installation.
