As a reminder, the Call for Proposals for the 2024 DSpace North American Users Group is coming up! If you are unable to complete the short form by May 24th, please continue to use the form as long as it is active or send a proposal after the date to dspace-user-...@umn.edu

The program committee would also be interested in proposals that repurpose content shared at Open Repositories or other recent regional conferences such as the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries, the Southern Miss Institutional Repository Conference (SMIRC), or the Northeast Institutional Repository Day in order to share with a broader audience. 


Have you migrated to DSpace 7? Are you still in the process? Have you learned new ways to use DSpace, the API, or how to connect it to other open-source software? Are you unable to attend Open Repositories but looking for a way to connect and share with those in the DSpace community? 

The 2024 DSpace North American Users Group planning committee invites proposals for the upcoming meeting on September 23-25, 2024 at the Elmer L. Andersen Library at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. This will be an in-person event only. A registration fee of $50 will be requested to cover catering & coffee.

The planning committee is interested in sessions and proposals centered around the themes of Migrations & Integrations as imagined by you. Proposals may include stories about moving into DSpace or upgrading your DSpace repository, your experience with other open-source tools that can be used with DSpace, or ways your repository is part of other services and programs. Examples include:

  • Integrating accessibility into DSpace,
  • Research data repositories,
  • Cultural heritage materials,
  • Image or media content, or
  • Anything else you would like to share with the community!

All topics will be welcome and may be technical or non-technical in their approach or focus.

  • Deadline for Proposals: May 24, 2024
  • Notifications of acceptance will be sent by June 7, 2024

The goal of the meeting is to provide opportunities to discuss ideas, strategies, best practices, use cases, and future development with members of the DSpace community, including repository developers, technology directors, institutional repository managers, librarians, archivists, service providers, and more.
