DuraSpace presents a community webinar,
“Making DSpace Your Own” on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 12:00p.m. EST.
Presented by Terry Brady, Georgetown University Library, Applications Programmer Analyst, Department of Library Information Technology
While there are many exciting changes under development with the future DSpace 7 User Interface, this presentation will describe how to get started TODAY using DSpace 6, the current version in production.
This one-hour webinar is designed for anyone considering adopting DSpace as an open source repository platform and for anyone running DSpace who would like a simple introduction to the customization process. The webinar will emphasize the components of DSpace that have been optimized for customization and how to apply some common customizations to a DSpace instance:
- Bulk import options for populating a DSpace instance
- Adding a custom theme
- Customizing an item display page
- Customizing the item submission process
- Adding a custom facet
The presentation will be designed as a tutorial that will guide attendees toward implementing these customizations in their own DSpace instance. Time will be reserved at the end of the presentation for questions.
