As you may or may not have been aware, in the past, we had an
(unadvertised) DSpace Demonstration Repository available for live demos,
testing, or just a place to "play" with the software before installing it.
We've now updated this DSpace Demonstration Repository to run DSpace
1.6.0, and wish to advertise it as a place for anyone in the DSpace
Community to use for demonstrations or as a sandbox to play with the
latest software before installing it.
The above demonstration site provides a sample repository with all
DSpace 1.6.0 new features enabled. This demonstration site also
includes all DSpace interfaces (JSPUI, XMLUI, SWORD, OAI-PMH, LNI),
connected to the same underlying database (so items created via XMLUI
will also appear under JSPUI).
You'll also find that (if you visit the JSPUI or XMLUI) there are
pre-established user logins which allow you to browse/use the repository
as any of the following roles:
* DSpace Administrator
* DSpace Community Administrator (manage a community, and all
subcommunities, collections & items in it)
* DSpace Collection Administrator (manage a collection & items in it)
* DSpace Submitter (can only submit new items)
DuraSpace is committed to maintaining this demonstration repository for
at least the next three months. After that period, we will reassess
whether or not to keep this site up permanently, or whether to
temporarily bring it down until the next release of DSpace. Of course,
we are hopeful that this demonstration site will receive enough interest
and usage to warrant continued availability. We'll let the DSpace
Community know once any final decision has been made.
NOTE: We will not be actively monitoring the content or activities on
this server. If you notice any problems or spam content, we ask that you
either remove it (login as the sample Admin and delete it) or contact us
via the DSpace Feedback Form.
In the meantime, feel free to play around in this DSpace Demonstration
Repository. Let us know what you think!
