This is the demonstration, test-it-out, kick the tires, see how it
works instance of DSpace. This site is currently running DSpace 6.3.
DSpace is composed of a core-API and several distinct Web Interfaces.
Try out the demo versions of the standard DSpace web applications.
Programmatic Interfaces allow other systems to communicate with DSpace. Some interfaces are read-only to allow for harvesting, others enable content to be submitted to DSpace.
DSpace is an open source repository software package typically used for creating open access repositories for scholarly and/or published digital content. While DSpace shares some feature overlap with content management systems and document management systems, the DSpace repository software serves a specific need as a digital archives system, focused on the long-term storage, access and preservation of digital content.
