My name is Ana Baptista and I'm emailing you from Universidade do
We are implementing DSpace here at Uminho with (what we believe) the
first Portuguese version of DSpace. We are now feeding the system with
Thesis and Dissertations from the whole university. We are also
starting to involve communities and we have started with 6 of them
which will make available other scientific documents such as articles
and reports. We hope to open the doors to our repository by the end of
We have some students willing to do research using DSpace. In
particular one of them is interested in studying the users that are
producers of scholarly resources stored in DSpace. With this in mind, I
would like to ask you the following:
- Are you doing similar studies in your intitutions? It seems to me
that, if there are, all these researchers could share experiences that
would benefit all of them. In particular for us it would be very
helpful to know similar studies in other cultural contexts.
- Do you know of any international organization willing to sponsor
these kind of studies?
I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
