The DSpace Wiki

Where you are right now!

A Wiki is a dynamic Web site that can easily be edited by anyone (yes, anyone). This makes it a great collaboration tool. The DSpace Wiki contains up-to-the-minute technical information about the DSpace platform, and what people around the world are doing with DSpace. If you're working with DSpace, please post what you're doing to the Wiki! You can also find out if others are doing or have done similar work!

Particularly useful pages on the Wiki:

DSpace Demo Site

The DSpace Demo Site is a live installation of the latest version of DSpace software. It is setup such that the maximum number of DSpace features is enabled, so that you can get a better sense of all the various things that DSpace can do. This demo site also allows anyone to login as any "role" in DSpace: System Administrator, Community/Collection Administration, Submitter or basic user (Demo logins are provided in the introductory text of the XMLUI and JSPUI on the demo site). Finally, all user and system interfaces are provided (e.g. XMLUI, JSPUI, SWORD, LNI, OAI-PMH) - a full list of them is on the splashpage of the demo site.

Occasionally, the data in the demo site may be removed or refreshed. This demo site is not meant to provide permanent storage of content and is not indexed by Google or other search engines.

If you run into issues or have questions, feel free to contact us on one of the DSpaceResources#Mailing Lists or in the IRC chatroom.
