DSpace is a free, open-source software application for creating
institutional repositories. Out of the box DSpace is a rather simple,
uninspired repository, but with a bit of work it can be turned into a
workhorse for disseminating institutional knowledge. By committing to using
DSpace as the canonical location for institutional outputs, you can focus
on standardizing metadata taxonomies and carefully curating content, then
leverage application program interfaces (APIs) to integrate it with other
services. This strategy is more efficient, reduces duplication of outputs,
and increases the potential impact of institutional knowledge through
syndication, harvesting, etc.
