York University Libraries, as part of its digital library activities, has installed the DSpace software to host York University research in digital form. The DSpace open source software was developed jointly by MIT Libraries and the Hewlett-Packard Company.
The goal of YorkSpace is to make York’s digital scholarly communications available Online and to provide stable long-term storage for them, something we have traditionally provided for print materials. We are currently working with several communities on campus to test the concept.
YorkSpace is now hosting a collection of 208 photographs for York University’s 50th Anniversary. Please click the image below to view York University’s 50th Anniversary Photograph Collection, or www.library.yorku.ca/dspace to view the YorkSpace home page.
