*Announcing: DuraSpace Hot Topics Webinar Series, "Introducing DSpace 7:
Next Generation UI"*
*DuraSpace is pleased to announce its latest Hot Topics Webinar Series,
"Introducing DSpace 7: Next Generation UI"*
*Curated by* Claire Knowles, Library Digital Development Manager, The
University of Edinburgh.
The next generation UI for DSpace, DSpace 7, is currently being crafted by
developers and technologists from DuraSpace, Atmire, 4Science, Texas A&M
and other institutions. The team is looking forward to sharing the reasons
behind why we are so excited about working on DSpace 7 in a 3-part webinar
series that aims to engage you, our valued community in this initiative.
The new, single UI (User Interface) for DSpace will implement functionality
currently available in JSPUI and XMLUI. The interface will interact with
DSpace core data through the REST API to insure complete separation of the
user layer from the data layer. It will be built as a modern responsive
client side web application using Angular 2. The Angular 2 user interface
(UI) and refactoring the REST API will support a dynamic user experience.
These efforts were born from the ideas presented at Open Repositories
the New DSpace User Interface” slides
Get on board–join us for 3-part webinar series entitled, “Introducing
DSpace 7: Next Generation UI.” Each webinar will be one hour and will
conclude with time for a Q&A session with the presenters.

itself increase in size and complexity. Join us for a discussion of how
DSpace can be used for research data, a look at changes that Dryad and
Datashare have made to DSpace to support research data, general research
data storage issues, and what types of additional Metadata are required to
