Beta 3 is the third scheduled Beta release provided for community feedback and to introduce the new features of the 7.0 platform. As a Beta release, we highly advise against running this version in production. Rather, we ask that you consider installing it in a test environment, try it out, and report back any issues or bugs you notice through GitHub (UI issuesBackend/API issues).

DSpace 7.0 Beta 3 is deployed for public testing on a dedicated demo site and it can be installed manually or via a Docker “quick install”.  Instructions are available at: Try out DSpace 7.

Included in Beta 3
  • Processes Admin UI (video) allows Administrators to run backend scripts/processes while monitoring their progress & completion.
  • Manage Account Profile allows logged in users to update their name, language or password.
  • New User Registration (video) and password reset to the Login screen.
  • Login As (Impersonate) another account allows Administrators to debug issues that a specific user is seeing, or do some work on behalf of that user.
  • Manage Authorization Policies of an Item allows Administrators to directly change/update the access policies of an Item, its Bundles or Bitstreams.
  • Manage Item Templates of a Collection allows Administrators to create/manage template metadata that all new Items will start with when submitted to that Collection.
  • Administer Active Workflows (video) allows Administrators to see every submission that is currently in the workflow approval process.
  • CC License step allows your users to select a Creative Commons License as part of their submission.
  • Angular CLI compatibility was added to the User Interface. This allows developers to easily update the User Interface using standard Angular commandline tools.

Revisit the VIVO Conference 2020!

DSpace news - ოთხ, 09/09/2020 - 17:58

The VIVO Conference 2020, which took place past June 16-18, was unique in many ways;

We have had our first online conference, a form of event that is becoming increasingly common and likely to remain for the duration of the COVID 19 pandemic, and it was a big step to make the VIVO community more inclusive.

We are proud to announce the highest participation since 2011: 261 registrants from 23 countries worldwide (from almost all of the continents, except Antarctica), were able to attend 44 presentations from 56 co-authors.

We had really interesting presentations related to VIVO implementations, ontology developments and in general related to research information systems and research data management.

The virtual conference was recorded, and is now published on the TIB AV Portal. You can find the recorded presentations in the VIVO 2020 collection.

More presentations will be published soon!

Thanks to all participants and the VIVO community in general for the great success of the 11th VIVO 2020 Conference.

IFLA Submits Views on Digital Services Act

IFLA - სამ, 08/09/2020 - 14:59

The European Commission has launched its long-awaited consultation on the Digital Services Act (DSA) which will develop new rules for internet platforms.  These rules will potentially set new standards for government regulation online and, therefore, have a global impact on all digital stakeholders, including the library field.

This consultation takes place simultaneously with efforts to implement the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive, which already looked to open up key questions about the responsibilities of internet platforms, and how to ensure the respect of users’ fundamental rights within the digital sphere.

The DSA will look further at the future of the safe harbour provisions that provide protections for internet platforms against blame for the actions of their users. While some argue that platforms themselves should do more, others note that new responsibilities are likely to lead to over-blocking of ideas and expression online, without acting against those actually committing crimes.

The Act will also tackle additional key points such as the regulation of major digital players, and how to address mis/disinformation and data gathering – all issues likely to shape the future of the internet.

IFLA has therefore responded on behalf of the library field in order to make the case for users’ fundamental rights such as freedom of expression and freedom of access to information, including through exceptions and limitations to copyright, will be respected and ensured within the next legal framework.  

Related to the regulation of significant digital stakeholders, IFLA underlined that platforms should a priori not be held liable for third-party contents. Any new rules should also be realistic about the capacity of algorithms or other automated tools to make judgements about where the line between legitimate and dangerous speech lies.

IFLA also added that rules should be manageable for small stakeholders to compete within the digital single market. There are indeed strong grounds for considering how to avoid libraries and their users becoming ‘locked in’ to certain platforms or services offered by individual companies.

Furthermore, while use of data can of course help improve services and develop artificial intelligence, it is important that this remains a matter of choice for users.
