This Confluence wiki site, maintained by DuraSpace prior to the recent merger with LYRASIS, will transition from the duraspace.org domain to the lyrasis.org domain on Saturday, Nov 16 beginning at approximately 7pm ET. A period of downtime of 2-3 hours is expected. After the transition, this wiki will be available at https://wiki.lyrasis.org/. All links to duraspace.org wiki pages will be redirected to the correct lyrasis.org URL. If you have questions prior to or following the transition please contact: wikihelp@lyrasis.org.

In the last years, there is a growing number of institutions in Germany that run DSpace installations, most of them are libraries. They all have to deal with similar, German specific use cases, as for example to implement the automatic harvesting procedure of the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (German National Library).

This page and its sub-pages are the platform to coordinate the collaboration of the German DSpace users concerning German specific themes.

How to support DSpace?

To support DSpace, the DSpace Konsortium Deutschland helps Institutions in Germany to become a DSpace member. Furthermore the DSpace Konsortium Deutschland represents the interests of German DSpace Users within the DSpace Governance. If your institution is using DSpace and is situated in Germany, please consider to become a member of the DSpace Konsortium Deutschland to support the further development of DSpace.

Let's talk

There are numerous ways to get in touch. Just use them all: Mail, Slack and in person!

titleDSpace-de

DSpace-de is the mailing list of the German DSpace user community. If you have questions, tips or ideas dealing with problems specific for running a DSpace installation in Germany, the DSpace-de mailing list is the right one for you to use.

titleDSpace-Tech

If you have questions how to use DSpace or if you have a general technical problem, it would be better to write to the mailing list DSpace-tech. Most probably, on DSpace-tech you will get your answer much faster than on the much smaller list DSpace-de.

DSpace is using Slack as communication platform. Within slack there is a new channel for the German DSpace User Group: dspace-dach.


DSpace Anwendertreffen

In 2014 the University Library of the Technische Universität Berlin took the initiative to restart the collaboration between the German DSpace user community and invited to a meeting in Berlin. Thank you so much.

Let's make it a recurring event and welcome any German or German speaking participants ( ... and yes we can also talk English if applicable). This is why we are now called DSpace Anwendertreffen.

Specific Topics for Germany

DNB Harvesting

Automatic harvesting procedure of online publications ("Netzpublikationen") and online doctoral thesis ("Elektronische Disserationen") to DNB

By the German National Library law, the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (DNB) has the task of collecting, cataloguing, indexing and archiving non-physical media works (“Netzpublikationen”, i.e. online publications). German publishers as well as universities and other institutions have to deliver their online publications to DNB. For online doctoral thesis and other university publications DNB offers an automatic harvesting submission procedure via OAI-PMH, using the special format XMetaDissPlus.

If you have realized support of the XMetaDissPlus format with DSpace’s OAI module, please add information here about how you solved this. You can also attache files (e.g. XSLT) as attachment to this page.

Persistent Identifier using urn:nbn:de

Beside handle and DOI there are other persistent identifier systems: DNB runs URN (urn:nbn:de). For some years it had been the only persistent identifier system that was accepted by DNB and it had been mandatory for German institutions to use URNs. This has been changed a few years ago. DNB now accepts Handles and DOIs as well as URNs for non-physical media works ("Netzpublikationen", see above).

You still can generate and register URNs, but this will need some changes in DSpace. There are several German DSpace implementations that use URNs, but there is no official implementation within DSpace.

This section is to be intended for the discussion of urn:nbn:de and its implementation in DSpace. If you are interested in this topic and want to find collaboration partners you could send an email to DSpace-de. Please feel free to add your code, documentation or other information about using urn:nbn:de to this section.
