While there are many exciting changes under development with the future
DSpace 7 User Interface, this presentation will describe how to get started
TODAY using DSpace 6, the current version in production.
This one-hour webinar is designed for anyone considering adopting DSpace as
an open source repository platform and for anyone running DSpace who would
like a simple introduction to the customization process. The webinar will
emphasize the components of DSpace that have been optimized for
customization and how to apply some common customizations to a DSpace
- Bulk import options for populating a DSpace instance
- Adding a custom theme
- Customizing an item display page
- Customizing the item submission process
- Adding a custom facet
The presentation will be designed as a tutorial that will guide attendees
toward implementing these customizations in their own DSpace instance.
Time will be reserved at the end of the presentation for questions.
