Cornell University Library has relied on the DSpace platform as its institutional repository since 2002. It’s important to us to use and support community-owned infrastructure. From time to time we have considered other options, but when we have compared DSpace to other platforms, we have found that it does the best job of meeting our needs with minimal local development. The platform is reliable, and its widespread use gives us confidence that it has real staying power in the community. We’re excited about the changes in DSpace 7!
