A brief summary of the recent DSpace Community Network Survey results is now available.
Here's an excerpt:
- Type of institution: 83% of respondents represent academic institutions, 19% research centers, 10% archive/public library, 10% government *
- Number of items: More than half of the respondents have 2,500 or less items in their repositories, only 15% have 10,000 or more items . . . .
- Modifications to software: 54% minor cosmetic, 29% new features, 29% significant UI customizations, 23% no changes, 8% core code changes*
*Many of the questions allowed for multiple answers, therefore some of the numbers and percentages represent multiple answers from the same respondent.
