Making DSpace Your Own
While there are many exciting changes under development with the future DSpace 7 User Interface, this presentation will describe how to get started TODAY using DSpace 6, the current version in production.

This one-hour webinar is designed for anyone considering adopting DSpace as an open source repository platform and for anyone running DSpace who would like a simple introduction to the customization process. The webinar will emphasize the components of DSpace that have been optimized for customization and how to apply some common customizations to a DSpace instance:
- Bulk import options for populating a DSpace instance
- Adding a custom theme
- Customizing an item display page
- Customizing the item submission process
- Adding a custom facet

The presentation will be designed as a tutorial that will guide attendees toward implementing these customizations in their own DSpace instance. Time will be reserved at the end of the presentation for questions.

If you are interested in attending this webinar but aren’t familiar at all with DSpace, introductory documentation is available at and the latest version of DSpace is available to try out at .

This webinar will be recorded and made available to our community. Space is limited to 100 participants and pre-registration is required.
