DSpace Long Term RoadMap / Strategic Direction

Over the past few years, the DSpace project has made great strides towards establishing a longer term roadmap.

In 2013, we held a series of “Vision Discussions” to begin brainstorming the vision for DSpace's future. This resulted in a high level Vision Document, as well as a community survey of needs and uses cases to achieve that vision.

In 2014, we analyzed data from that community survey (into a very “rough” high-level plan), and the DSpace Community Advisory Team began to flesh out more detailed Use Cases that DSpace should strive to achieve.

In 2015, in conjunction with the new DSpace Steering Group and Leadership Group, we are now working towards drafting a longer term RoadMap. The goal of this RoadMap would be to attempt to schedule out a clear plan for achieving the most common community use cases, while also pointing out opportunities for institutions to collaborate on additional features or needs.

This session will summarize path we’ve taken towards achieving this long term Roadmap, as well as introduce an early draft of the long term Roadmap for community feedback. There will be an opportunity for open discussion / Q&A during this session.
