Announcing: DuraSpace Hot Topics Webinar Series, “Introducing DSpace 7: Next Generation UI”
DuraSpace is pleased to announce its latest Hot Topics Webinar Series, “Introducing DSpace 7: Next Generation UI”
Curated by Claire Knowles, Library Digital Development Manager, The University of Edinburgh.
The next generation UI for DSpace, DSpace 7, is currently being crafted by developers and technologists from DuraSpace, Atmire, 4Science, Texas A&M and other institutions. The team is looking forward to sharing the reasons behind why we are so excited about working on DSpace 7 with our community in a 3-part webinar series that aims to engage you, our valued community in this initiative.
The new, single UI (User Interface) for DSpace implements all functionality currently available in JSPUI and XMLUI. The interface will interact with DSpace core data through the REST API to insure complete separation of the user layer from the data layer. It will be built as a modern responsive client side web application using Angular 2. The Angular 2 user interface (UI) and refactoring the REST API will support a dynamic user experience. These efforts were born from the ideas presented at Open Repositories 2016 (“Introducing the New DSpace User Interface” slides).
Get on board–join us for 3-part webinar series entitled, “Introducing DSpace 7: Next Generation UI.” Each webinar will be one hour and will conclude with time for a Q&A session with the presenters.

Join us for a discussion of how DSpace can be used for research data, a look at changes that Dryad and Datashare have made to DSpace to support research data, general research data storage issues, and what types of additional Metadata are required to manage research data.
