DSpace Add-ons

We have developed a number of add-ons for DSpace (and DSpace-CRIS). Some of them are already available as open source software:

  • CKAN Integration

Others, already available for purchase, might soon get open with your help:

  • IIIF Image Viewer
  • Document Viewer
  • OCR & Transcription
  • Video/Audio Streaming


DSpace-GLAM (Gallery, Library, Archive and Museum) is a modular platform based on DSpace, specifically configured for the integrated management, use, long-term preservation and exploitation of the digital cultural heritage.


Open Journal Systems (OJS) is a journal management and publishing system that has been developed by the Public Knowledge Project to expand and improve access to research. The team at 4Science has been collaborating with the community since 2004 to offer new features and reliable support services.
