   DSpace questions answered in EIFL FOSS and OA Webinar
  29 Oct 2013

A webinar that was a joint venture between EIFL's FOSS and OA programmes
took place on Monday 28th October 2013, with 21 countries represented among
the 43 delegates, including seven each from Ghana, Lithuania and Nigeria.

The DSpace began with a presentation from Bram Luyten of
a DSpace support organisation. The short presentation covered the basics of
DSpace and an overview of the newer and upcoming features. Bram showed
screenshots of some well known repositories based on DSpace, such as
the University
of Cambridge <https://www.repository.cam.ac.uk/> in the UK,Harvard
University <http://dash.harvard.edu/> in the USA, the World Bank's Open
Knowledge <https://openknowledge.worldbank.org/> repository, and the United
Nations UNECA <http://repository.uneca.org/> repository.

After this 30 minute presentation the session then moved into a Q&A
session, based around a GoogleDoc on which was listed a series of questions
posted in advance of the webinar by delegates.

Bram talked through answers he had prepared for these questions, while more
were posted by delegates during the webinar itself. There were so many
questions that the session ran for 90 minutes instead of the scheduled 60,
and we are immensely grateful to Bram for staying online and answering in
some detail every question that was raised.

After the webinar, Bram spent some considerable time adding more
information to the GoogleDoc, making sure every answer was as full as
possible. You can read the questions raised by the delegates and Bram's
answers to them at http://bit.ly/dspace-eifl-questions
