VLEs have proved to be useful tools in facilitating staff in organising educational resources and activities in a hierarchical structure representing the structure of Programmes and Units. While they are excellent vehicles for delivery of materials, they are not ideal mechanisms for the management and curation of materials. There is an urgent need for a repository which focuses on the educational process and the storage, retrieval and sharing of educational materials which can be used to populate VLEs. The University of Southampton has taken the strategic decision to develop a repository for educational materials using its own well-established EPrints research repository software as the mechanism. The aim is to use a co-design process approach both to specify and to implement the details of the system which will be deliverable and sustainable. This will extend and embed the EPrints software within the educational domain. In doing so, the project will develop a richer understanding of processes of institutional change and integration at both a strategic and discipline level. Project start date: 2007-11-01. Project end date: 2009-03-01. (Excerpt from <a href="http://www.edspace.ecs.soton.ac.uk/">this source</a>)

dspace 2.0

The DSpace Foundation is expanding the current set of capabilities of the DSpace software to allow institutions to enhance the value of their repository by making digital content more accessible and to move seamlessly between platforms and applications. To this aim the Foundation is interested in promoting the development of DSpace 2.0 to improve the stability, scalability and extensibility of the software. This will allow new and existing users seamless interoperability with other applications for creating, managing and collecting digital content, the ability to ingest and manage more complex digital objects, and to scale to tens of millions of items. A few key benefits resulting from the new development would be: - Integration and support of the Scholarly Works Application Profile, SWAP; - Ability to customize and ingest metadata supporting other DC application profiles in support of more complex items such as images, video and geospatial data; - Integration and support for SWORD, a web service funded by JISC to allow for a common deposit interface; - Ease of integration with e-learning platforms such as Sakai, Moodle and Blackboard; - Backend data management and preservation for publishing systems such as Open Journal System (OJS); - Improved support of SOA approach through further development of LNI (Light network interface), standard protocols to move data into and out of the DSpace repository; - Ability to customize the interface and workflow engine to better suit your institutions needs; - Ability to handle more complex objects with ease, such as websites, multiple versions of documents etc using the FRBR model. Project start date: 2008-05-01. Project end date: 2008-12-01. (Excerpt from <a href="https://pims.jisc.ac.uk/projects/view/806">this source</a>)

DSpace is an open source software package that provides the tools for management of digital assets, and is commonly used as the basis for an institutional repository. It supports a wide variety of data, including books, theses, 3D digital scans of objects, photographs, film, video, research data sets and other forms of content. The data is arranged as community collections of items, which bundle bitstreams together. (Excerpt from <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DSpace">Wikipedia article: Dspace</a>)
