DSpace is a practical and sustainable digital institutional repository, now employed in a variety of situations and adapted to a variety of purposes. The speakers review the technology from the perspective of one of its principal designers and present reports on its implementation in two different archival settings a state archives and a university archives. The focus is on adaptation, management and collaboration, with an evaluation of the costs and benefits of innovation.
