Getting Started with DSpace 7.0: Basic Training

Donohue, Tim; Lowel, Art; Bollini, Andrea

DSpace 7.0 is a major step in the evolution of the DSpace platform and repositories in general. While retaining its ease-of-use, out-of-the-box goals, DSpace 7.0 features a brand new, client-side, responsive user interface (built on Angular), a full-featured, self-describing REST API, and a powerful new configurable object model (featuring entities with relationships).

This 3-hour workshop will provide basic training on DSpace 7.0, due to be released in August 2021. Attendees will learn about the installation / upgrade process and new configuration options. All new features will be discussed or demonstrated (including the new public, submitter and administrative user interfaces and new REST API). The workshop will conclude with step-by-step examples of branding/theming the new user interface (which could be followed for a “hands on” tutorial).

The workshop will wrap up with a brief overview of new features to look forward to in 7.1, 7.2, etc.
