The Harvard Library Office for Scholarly Communication worked together with Atmire on a major upgrade to Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH).

Pioneering in the field of Open Access, Harvard originally launched the Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH) repository on September 1st 2009. Over the years, Harvard added dozens of customizations, including workflow tools, DASH Stories, and MyDASH statistics, to meet the needs of its staff, authors, and readers.

Driven by its vision for a more useful open-access repository, the OSC team committed to upgrade DASH, and turned to Atmire to implement the major new iteration of DASH.

We’re very happy with the upgrade to DASH. For nine years we’d been using an early version of DSpace, heavily customized for our needs. It gave us exactly what we wanted and worked beautifully. But the constant tweaking took its toll. The upgrade embraces all our major customizations, reduces our maintenance load, makes it easier for new developers to join the project, and adds features we couldn’t easily have added on our own. Atmire knows the DSpace universe, and it was a pleasure to work with them on the new code and the migration of our content. Peter Suber, director of the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication
