Milestones: 10,000 Item Added to UDSpace, the University of Delaware Institutional Repository
From the University of Delaware:
The University of Delaware Library has announced that the 10,000th item has been added to the Institutional Repository of the library. In addition, the release of UDSpace, the newly renamed Institutional Repository.
UDSpace (formerly named DSpace) now includes over 35 “communities” and more than 10,000 items, a remarkable achievement in just eight years.
Chandra Reedy, professor, Center for Historic Architecture and Design, is currently in the process of adding approximately 250 images to UDSpace. She said, “My National Science Foundation grant ‘Calibration of Digital Image Analysis Protocols for Archaeological Ceramics’ required that I have the experimental images publicly available so that other researchers can use them. The ability to easily deposit these images in UDSpace is the perfect way to meet this mandate.”
“UDSpace is a work in progress that continually evolves. The often unpublished research treasures of the University of Delaware faculty are an important complement to their published works,” said Susan Brynteson, vice provost and May Morris University Librarian.
