DSpace is a groundbreaking digital library system that captures, stores, indexes, preserves and redistributes the intellectual output of an organization's researchers in digital formats.
Developed jointly by MIT Libraries and Hewlett-Packard (HP), DSpace is now freely available to organizations worldwide as an open source system that can be customized and extended.
DSpace is an open source software system that enables institutions to:
- Capture and describe digital works using a custom workflow process
- Distribute an institution's digital works over the web, so users can search and retrieve items in the collection
- Preserve digital works over the long term
To collect, distribute, and preserve research materials in increasingly complex digital formats is a time-consuming and expensive chore for individual faculty and their departments, labs, and centers to manage themselves. The DSpace system provides a way to manage these research materials and publications in a professionally maintained repository to give them greater visibility and accessibility over time.
MeshCMS is an online editing system written in Java. It provides a set of features usually included in a CMS, but it uses a more traditional approach: pages are stored in regular HTML files and all additional features are file-based. It has been thought as a quick tool to edit pages online, without many of the features that most CMSes offer. MeshCMS simply helps you to edit pages, manage files and create some common components like menus, breadcrumbs, mail forms, image galleries and so on. There is no database, no content approval and no versioning. Not all people need those features and those giant-sized products that require too much time to be learned and too much system resources to run. MeshCMS is essential and requires few resources: the default 64MB heap is enough to host a handful of sites. Main features are: file-based, easy to install, cross-browser, wysiwyg editor integrated, file manager, themes, modules, tag library, page caching, hotlinking prevention.
