TDL DSpace Users Group

Purpose of the group: The TDL DSpace Users Group (DUG) works to create an active community among DSpace users that:

  • facilitates mutual support for DSpace use and repository management;
  • identifies areas of work that could be taken on by member working groups or by TDL staff;
  • connects the TDL DSpace user community to the larger open source DSpace community in North America.

Who can join:

  • Membership in the DSpace Users Group is open to users affiliated with TDL member institutions who have a role in managing their DSpace repository. 
  • Any users of DSpace, regardless of TDL membership, may attend user group meetings and join the DSpace Users Group email list.

How to get involved:

  • Subscribe to the TDL DSpace Users Group Email List. The list is used for discussion of DSpace and repository management issues and for sharing announcements from TDL and the DUG.
  • Attend the DUG monthly meeting. This meeting is open to anyone interested. Find details about future meetings on the TDL Events calendar, or email for more information.
