DSpace (tm) 1.0 Released

HP Labs and MIT Libraries are pleased to announce that version 1.0 of the
DSpace institutional repository software platform is available for download,
evaluation, and use.  DSpace is an open source digital asset management
software platform that enables institutions to capture and describe digital
works using a submission workflow module; distribute an institution's
digital works over the web through a search and retrieval system; and store
and preserve digital works over the long term.  DSpace runs on a variety of
hardware platforms, and supports OAI-PMH version 2.0. MIT Libraries has
deployed DSpace 1.0 in full production at MIT and is actively working with
seven other institutions in the US, Canada and the UK to explore federation
models and services that build on the DSpace platform.

DSpace at MIT is a registered data provider with the Open Archives
Initiative.  We'd like to thank Jeff Young and OCLC for the OAICat software,
and the impressive and speedy support of its use.
