Step-By-Step Install Guide DSpace 1.7 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server

Introduction
DSpace was designed in 2002 by MIT Libraries in collaboration with the Hewlett-Packard Company. Its focus in the submission, storage, access and preservation of research material in digital format makes it well suited to the needs of an institutional repository. DSpace open source software is a turnkey institutional repository application. DSpace is an open-source digital repository software adopted in 2005 by the Texas Digital Library as the platform for its digital repository service offering. The software allows institutions to create online institutional repositories that ingest, store, and provide open access to all types of digital content, including documents, images, video, audio, and datasets. DSpace is the software of choice for academic, nonprofit, and commercial organizations building open digital repositories. It is free and easy to install "out of the box" and completely customizable to fit the needs of any organization. During the past 5 years, there was a significant growth in libraries implementing institutional repositories, and it is still growing (http://www.opendoar.org ). Institutional repositories have been implemented to digitally preserve and archive the research assets of individual institutions, but also to provide open access to research conducted by members of the research communities from these institutions. The Open Access and Open Source Software movements have gained rapid momentum world over. Many institutions and organizations are setting up open access repositories using open source software, following open standards. There are a number of free open source software products available for developing digital libraries, and DSpace (http://www.dspace.org ) is one of the most popular software developed jointly by MIT Libraries and HP labs. DSpace is a digital asset management system. It helps create, index and retrieve various forms of digital content. DSpace is adaptable to different community needs. Interoperability between systems is built-in and it adheres to international standards for metadata.

Hands-on Lab Session
In this Hands-on Labs, you will learn how to install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server and prepare it for the installation of DSpace Digital Repository. You’ll also learn how to perform post-installation configuration e.g., upgrade the system with new patches and bug fixes, configure static IP address from dynamic one, change the computer hostname, modify hosts file, perform ping test among others. Next, you will learn how to install DSpace on Linux Ubuntu 10.04 server .Upon completion of this lab session you should have gained a capability and expertise to install and maintain DSpace Digital Repository which you can use to manage your digital content repository hosting solutions. The entire lab training was performed on VMware. But you can also use the open source VirtualBox from Oracle.

Universities and research libraries around the world use institutional repository in the following ways: • • • • • • • • • • • Scholarly communication Storing learning materials and courseware Electronic publishing Managing collections of research documents Preserving digital materials for the long term Adding to the university’s prestige by showcasing its academic research Institutional leadership role for the Library Knowledge management Research assessment Encouraging open access to scholarly research Housing digitized collections Each university has a unique culture and assets that require a customized approach. Established submission guidelines and workflow.

Many universities have found it helpful to run a pilot programme for their institutional repository service. consider the amount of training and support you will want to offer. to do some marketing to advertise the service on campus. Each of the varied user groups needs general exposure to the service –its features and how it is it used. it is critical to communicate how the service benefits the university community – in other words. These periods reflect milestones in phased development and allow for differing levels of resource commitment to meet those objectives. units. 1. Academics and their designated content contributors need training in adding content to the system and setting up content areas for departments or research centres. colleges. centers.
