(spacey as in dspace :) )
Notes by Christina Pikas
They are basically a hosting facility for Dspace for institutions that can't host in-house (openrepository.com).
- complete set up within 3 months
- technical support
In-house solution has a lot of hidden costs. They have predictable costs -- set-up and maintenance.
The hierarchy is communities and collections. She then went through what it looks like to upload papers and showed an example implementation at UConn.
According to Stevan Harnad, the trouble isn't setting up the software, it's getting the content. (he talked about http://www.eprints.org/, his product, which also offers hosting)
Question from Vivian Siegal - would I have to submit three times - to the journal, to the NIH repository, to my institution? -- no they have automatic feeds.
