DSpace is excited to share that since we launched the DSpace Development Fund, members of the worldwide DSpace community have contributed to supporting continued funded development for DSpace, the software of choice for academic, non-profit, and commercial organizations building open digital repositories.

These contributions directly support software development of key features prioritized by the DSpace community.

DSpace gratefully acknowledges the following organizations for their contributions to the DSpace Development Fund:

  • Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin – Medical Library
  • Freie Universität Berlin, Universitätsbibliothek
  • Georgia Tech Library
  • Humboldt Universität zu Berlin
  • Technische Universität Berlin
  • Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Darmstadt
  • Universitätsbibliothek Kassel

Are you interested in supporting the DSpace Development Fund?

Here are some ways you or your institution can support DDF:

  • The best way to support DSpace is still through membership. A large portion of membership fees go directly into the development of DSpace. If your organization is not a member yet, please join us!
  • If your organization is already a member, increase your membership fee one time only or on a recurring basis. We’ll count the increase toward the DDF.
  • If your organization can’t commit to membership but would like to support DSpace development, you can make a one-time contribution of any size to the DDF.
  • If you would like to make an individual contribution (outside of your organization), you can make a one-time contribution to the DDF.

Contact us at DSpaceDonations@lyrasis.org if you would like to know more and contribute.

DSpace continues to grow and evolve to support open repositories because of generous contributions of time and resources by the global DSpace community. Please consider contributing to help us maintain this critical development work and to enhance the software you use.
