This group was previously called the DSpace 7 UI Outreach group, and then changed focus to DSpace 7 (final product) marketing and beyond. This work is now part of the DSpace Marketing Interest Group. Previous meeting notes can be found on the DSpace 7 Marketing Working Group page.
A key aspect of DSpace Marketing Interest Group efforts focus on growing our open source community and actively engaging its members. The Telling DSpace Stories Work Group (TDS) of the DSpace Marketing Interest Group aims to increase interactions and build deeper connections between community members and institutions by creating and publishing stories about their DSpace repositories. The stories will be generated from information gathered as community members from one institution interview members from other institutions. The DSpace stories will be published widely throughout the DSpace and DuraSpace communities to raise awareness about the global impact and reach of DSpace open access repositories, while encouraging other community members to participate in telling their DSpace stories.
