Discover DSpace

With over 30% of the global market share and nearly 3,000 active users, DSpace is by far the most widely used institutional repository in the world. DSpace is free, easy to install “out of the box”, and completely customizable to fit the needs of your Organization.

DSpace is used and financially supported by some of the best universities in the world:


DSpace preserves and enables easy and open access to all types of digital content including text, images, moving images, mpegs and data sets. With an ever-growing community of developers, committed to continuously expanding and improving the software, each DSpace installation benefits from the next.

The long-awaited new version, DSpace 7, brings DSpace to a single, modern user interface and REST API and integrates current technological standards and best practices.

If you are interested in more detailed information about DSpace 7, we encourage you to watch the recording of our recent webinar (in the window below). Piotr Masalski, the Director for RIMS at PCG talks about new features available in DSpace 7, possible integrations and the benefits of migration. He also covers important announcement about the end-of-life of the 5th and 6th versions of DSpace.

The recording includes a demo of a repository based on DSpace 7 CRIS version (the demo starts at 19:32 of the recording), built by PCG Academia. You can see for yourself the new features of DSpace 7 in action, with some additional custom developments from PCG. We might be a bit biased, but it is quite impressive what DSpace 7 can do!
