Hi Lewatle

It is great to know, and once you have upgraded to 1.8.0, maybe you should arrange a web conference then we can all join, and you can demo the changes et al? Looking very much forward, and we hope to upgrade once 1.8 is stable, but it won't be for a while .... It would be great if we can start collaborating virtually and share stuff. I think UP, UNISA, UWC, Fort Hare and Rhodes are also on 1.7 now.

Kind regards

Dear Ina and list

We also upgraded at long last from 1.4.2 to 1.7.2.

Our URL now is: https://ujdigispace.uj.ac.za

We are now using the Mirage theme.

With some outside help I think that we managed to get the upgrade done easily.

Could you expand on how you integrated with the look and feel of your institution? Was this a major issue? Did you get outside help? Is it worth the trouble?

Also, any thoughts from the list on the webometrics rankings and its actual value?

Dear all

We have successfully upgraded SUNScholar to DSpace Version 1.7 at http://scholar.sun.ac.za. The look and feel is now consistent with our new Library web page to be launched soon, as well as SUNSearch (Primo federated search). Inquiries can be directed to hgibson at sun.ac.za.

There are many out there who have upgraded to 1.7 already. Please share with us.

Kind regards
