DSpace Training for UNN Library Staff

The Library Principal Programmer took time to give a refreshers' training to the Library staff involved in uploading content to Dspace. Dspace is an open source software used in the management of the library's Institutional Repository (IR). The participants were the trainer, Submitters and Editors. The workflow starts from the Admin who does the configuration; the submitters who submit items to various Communities and Collections, and the Editors who edit the metadata, approve, and Commit to Archive. The process is designed in such a way that an Editor can reject a submission. This sends an alert to the Submitter who then effects the correction.
