Thanks for the information!
Greenstone has full text search, but I heard that its access control is much weaker than DSpace. Will it be able to allow certain documents open only to certain people or certain departments?

OK, that's not I typically think of when I hear "DRM". "Access control"
is (I think) the way it's usually put.
No, UpLib has no built-in access control system, though the hooks are
there, and I know that some have used them to do access control. I know
of one UpLib application which requires incoming connections to provide
a client certificate, which it uses to give different clients different
access rights. Probably overkill for most uses.
You'd probably want to do an application-specific Web UI, though -- you
could put the access restrictions there. I recently saw a Tomcat app
which uses the UpLib Java client-side library to search for documents,
then provided a completely custom UI.

How about Greenstone?
