thanks for your interest in DSpace. I attempted to answer your questions,
but if the answer seems unclear, or you wish to specify your questions
further, please do !
1. Not exactly sure what you mean with "modules" in this context.
In any case:
-> In terms of content, DSpace is able to handle any digital resource,
captured in files (and represented in bitstreams). These could be documents,
audiovisual files, datasets, ...
-> Functionality and grouping of duties: you are able to design a hierarchy
of communities and collections of items. For each of these communities and
collections, you can delegate certain administrative rights to different
people. An important part are the different steps in the workflow process:
for each collection, you can have different people responsible for the
submission of new items, as well as people responsible for
reviewing//editing this new content.
As an administrator, you are able to modify the look and feel of the whole
application, create and edit information pages for each collection or
community, and define profiles of descriptive (metadata) fields for the
submission of items. These profiles can be different for each collection.
2. From what I recall, Netlibrary is an important resource of commercial
resources (ebooks, audiobooks, databases). I'm not sure which goals you
would like to achieve with an integration, but it might be technically
possible to import descriptive fields (metdata) from Netlibrary resources,
and links to those items in Netlibrary. This way, visitors to your DSpace
instance could be linked to items in Netlibrary.
