My unit is investigating DSpace's potential for this same use.
Similarly, I will be part of the SAA presentation "Just Doing It! The
Smithsonian Institution Archives-Rockefeller Center Archive Joint Electronic
Records Project" Saturday morning. It is too early to tell whether DSpace
has sufficient capabilities to meet our criteria for the joint project. I
expect that the investigation results will indicate whether it should then
be included in the joint project or not.
I would be happy to find time at the meeting to compare notes.

Subject: [Dspace-general] DSpace for epubs and archival materials?
Our Head of Archives, Jody Thompson, and I are doing a
presentation at the Society of American Archivists' meeting in
August titled "SMARTech at Georgia Tech: The Role of an
Institutional Repository in a University Archives."
I would appreciate any information on DSpace installations (or
about other IRs) ingesting campus e-Publications and the
involvement of archivists in IRs or other innovative uses
archivists have found for DSpace/IRs.
Please feel free to contact me off-list.
