*DSpaceDirect Now Features DSpace 5 Improvements*

/Winchester, MA/  The hosted DSpaceDirect 
<http://dspacedirect.org/> repository service just got better!

One of the key benefits in choosing the fully-hosted DSpaceDirect 
repository service is that customers are able to use the most recent 
version of DSpace without having to tie up staff and technical resources 
to upgrade software. *All current and prospective customers now enjoy 
DSpace 5 benefits–the ability to more easily migrate from older versions 
of DSpace, to batch import content and more.* The release of DSpace 5 
<http://duraspace.org/node/2436> offers users an even easier-to-use and 
more efficient institutional repository solution.

  * Sign-up for a DSpaceDirect information session:
    http://dspacedirect.org/register
  * DSpaceDirect low-cost pricing options: http://dspacedirect.org/pricing

The following innovative features are now available as part of the 
DSpaceDirect <http://dspacedirect.org/> service:

*Batch Importing*
Adding a lot of content in a “batch” to a DSpaceDirect account just 
became easier with the batch import feature that is now available 
through the administrative interface. Users create a SimpleArchiveFormat 
package, zip it up, and upload it through the browser and DSpaceDirect 
will ingest the content and metadata automatically into the repository.

*File Download Tracking*
Individual file downloads in a DSpaceDirect repository are now tracked 
and recorded in the Google Analytics interface along with a full list of 
other repository statistics, allowing repository administrators to know 
which files are being downloaded the most, the least, from where in the 
world, etc.

*Thumbnail Image Enhancements*
Any time an image and NOW pdf file is added to a DSpaceDirect repository 
a thumbnail for that file is created. With the latest upgrade, these 
thumbnails are more crisp and clear than ever allowing users to easily 
see a preview of the full-size image or pdf file being stored in the 
repository.

And coming soon, the new, modern and responsive user interface for 
DSpaceDirect that will make the repository mobile-friendly and a player 
in the modern web technology world. Plans to roll out this new theme 
will be underway early this summer, so stay tuned. For a preview of 
what’s in store for the new interface, called Mirage 2, please visit the 
demo DSpace web site (demo.dspace.org/xmlui <http://demo.dspace.org/xmlui>).

Two new and cost effective DSpaceDirect *Add-On Packages 
<http://dspacedirect.org/add-on-packages>* are also available including:

*PDF Cover Pages*
DSpaceDirect will now automatically create a cover page for downloaded 
pdfs stored in the repository. This citation page can be customized to 
include the name and URL for the repository, the community and 
collection where the pdf currently is stored, as well as the date, 
title, author, and URI for the item and several other optional fields.

*ORCID Integration*
The ORCID integration add-on package for DSpaceDirect is an option which 
enables ORCID compatibility to the existing DSpaceDirect author 
capabilities. This new add-on lowers the threshold to adopting ORCID for 
institutions interested in exploring ORCID capabilities.

DSpaceDirect subscription plans are priced very competitively and are 
available in several different sizes to meet various customer needs. 
Additionally, add-on packages are available in order to allow further 
customization of a DSpaceDirect account. More information about pricing 
can be found at http://dspacedirect.org/pricing.

*About DSpaceDirect*
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 
(http://dspacedirect.org <http://dspacedirect.org/>) is a hosted DSpace 
repository service that allows institutions of any size to afford to 
keep their digital content safe and accessible over time.

*About DuraSpace*

501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization providing leadership and 
innovation for open technologies that promote durable, persistent access
