DSpaceDirect is a hosted repository service built using DSpace software and offered by the DuraSpace not-for-profit organization. With DSpaceDirect users can access, manage, and preserve any content or file type in a hosted environment. Resources stored in DSpaceDirect are easily discovered by your users and easily managed by you. The service will also preserve and provide access to academic faculty and student papers, projects, and research. DSpaceDirect can also be used to store and share large image, video, and audio files.

DSpaceDirect Information Sessions, conducted the LAST WEDNESDAY of every month at 12:30pm ET, aim to familiarize interested individuals with DSpaceDirect’s features, functionality, and the web interface. Each session is comprised of a live demo via a web conferencing system and gives attendees the ability to ask questions of the presenter.
