Built on DSpace, the most widely-used repository application in the world with more than 1,500 installed instances, DSpaceDirect was inspired by the idea that the past creates the future as each generation builds knowledge on the scholarship that came before. DSpaceDirect is a managed DSpace repository service that allows institutions of any size to afford to keep their digital content safe and accessible over time. Small institutions are able to get a repository up and running right away that can be made available to patrons as well as to new users worldwide. Users say that the DSpaceDirect easy start-up accelerates discussions about digital content stewardship and preservation best practices at their institutions.
Robbie Bolton, Library Director, White Library, Spring Arbor University explains, “DSpaceDirect has made it possible for smaller academic libraries, like Spring Arbor's White Library, to provide online digital repositories to promote faculty publications and student research.”
The ability to provide long-term access to and archiving of digital assets is the cornerstone of a scholarly culture of openness. DSpaceDirect is a launchpad for accessing the past to create the future, with no institutions left behind. With annual subscriptions starting at less than $4,000 affordable long-term access is within reach–the only hosted solution providing access, management and preservation in one package.
