DSpace Repository: Overview and Instructional Video

Group Project - 2 members

UT Austin, Digital Libraries Class

Master of Science in Information Studies

This project was a collaborative endeavor between two members, wherein we produced a comprehensive video review of DSpace. The scope encompassed an examination of local use cases, a historical overview spanning 18 years of DSpace's evolution, and a detailed comparison between the current and beta versions of the platform.

Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we successfully executed this project remotely, leveraging our computer cameras. While the absence of professional AV equipment was a constraint, I am confident that we demonstrated adept coordination and produced a high-quality instructional video under the circumstances.

In addition to the intrinsic value of understanding repositories, this experience provided me with valuable insights into effectively coordinating remote instructional content. It underscored the significance of consistent and robust communication within a team, especially in times of global crisis. I also acquired the skills necessary to create systems and instructional segments, design slides, and edit video content using Adobe Premiere Pro, commencing from the midpoint of the video. This project has not only bolstered my technical proficiency but also reaffirmed the importance of resilience and teamwork in the face of unprecedented challenges.
