This space is thought to make it easy for DSpace users in Uganda to share information about their activities, projects, events and ideas and to make them known to the global DSpace Community. In Uganda there are 12 installations (and more coming up ) and a vibrant community of users. This page and its sub-pages are the platform to coordinate the collaboration among Ugandan institutions in order to facilitate discussions on Country specific themes and topics of interest.
1. Who is using DSpace in Uganda?
In the Duraspace Registry there are information about the DSpace installations currently running in Uganda. Please take a moment to look for your Institution and check whether the information is correct. If your institution is missing, you can add it here: https://duraspace.org/registry/register-your-site/
2. How to communicate?
There are numerous ways to get in touch, both at a global level with the general DSpace Community and at the specific country level.
2.a. Mailing Lists
General and global DSpace lists
Globally, there are several public mailing lists that you can join, depending on your particular interest:
firstname.lastname@example.org: General conversations about the DSpace platform and how to set up and run a DSpace installation. Any DSpace user can send questions, share news and raise the dialogue about DSpace with people who manage other repositories.
You can also join by sending an email to email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org: Sdspaceemail@example.com : Technical support for the DSpace platform. If you have a technical query or if you are having problems in the operation of DSpace, this is the correct list (for more information check the Troubleshoot an error page ). If you have technical knowledge and would like to give a hand to those who need some help, join, please!
