In response to the growing demands of DSpace platform development, and
in recognition of their contributions, the committers are pleased to
announce 2 new members.
Tim Donohue is the Research Programmer for the IDEALS repository
(http://ideals.uiuc.edu) at the University of Illinois, currently in its
pilot phase. Thus far, his DSpace development interests have centered
on the submission user interface (e.g. the Configurable Submission
patch), and local customizations of the DSpace user interface (e.g.
"DSpace How-To Guide" - http://wiki.dspace.org/DspaceGuides , written
with Dorothea Salo). More generally, he's interested in helping to
make the DSpace platform easier to customize and manage.
Claudia Jürgen is the librarian in charge of the maintenance and further
development of the document server at the University Library of Dortmund
https://eldorado.uni-dortmund.de/. The server was started in 1996 and
migrated to DSpace in 2005. Her main interests in DSpace and
institutional repositories at large are:
- Long term preservation
- Metadata modelling
- documentation and structured information about DSpace
- making DSpace more flexible and easier to handle
