Webinar Recording: DSpace Fundamentals


Refresh or expand your knowledge on fundamental DSpace concepts.

Are you new to DSpace or are you starting new collections in your repository? Chances are, you will have to take decisions involving communities, collections, items and metadata.

Understanding these concepts, their possibilities and limitations, will guide you along the way.

This webinar covers:

  • Representing digital content with items and bitstreams
  • Altering metadata schemas and submission forms
  • Managing your community and collection hierarchy

This webinar applies to any version of DSpace. We discuss the impact of the new DSpace 7 Entities feature, on these fundamental concepts.
