The DSpace™ project of the MIT Libraries and the Hewlett Packard Laboratories has built an institutional repository system for digital research material. This paper will describe the rationale for institutional repositories, the DSpace system, and its implementation at MIT. Also described are the plans for making DSpace open source in an effort to provide a useful test bed and a platform for future research in the areas of open scholarly communication and the long-term preservation of fragile digital research material.
As a project of MIT Libraries and the Hewlett-Packard Company, DSpace provides stable long-term storage needed to house the digital products of MIT faculty and researchers.
DSpaceTM (http://dspace.org/) is the new open source digital repository system from the MIT Libraries and Hewlett-Packard Labs designed to support the digital collections of academic research institutions, as well as the SPARC conception of Institutional Repositories for digital research material. The DSpace system has been described elsewhere in detail so the focus of this article is on its implementation at MIT for archiving e-prints and other artifacts of scholarly communication, and making these available to the public. The MIT Libraries are deeply concerned about the well-documented crisis in scholarly communication and are committed to working towards innovative solutions. We share this concern with many of the MIT faculty and administration, several of who have been key supporters of the DSpace project and related initiatives at...
The MIT Libraries is addressing the problem of maintaining and sharing digital content over the long haul with a project called DSpace. For this digital repository, a simple, open-source software application was built that not only accepts digital materials and makes them available on the Web but also puts them into a data management regime that helps to preserve them for generations to come. Other organizations worldwide have begun similar efforts including Cornell University, and the University of Toronto, the University of Cambridge. DSpace has a growing group of committed programmers distributed across the globe who continually maintain and improve it.
