WHAT IS IT ?
DSpace-GLAM is a free open-source platform for the creation, preservation and dissemination of Digital Collections of Cultural Heritage.
It is an extension of DSpace with an enhanced data model and can be easily integrated with image viewers, media servers and a OCR module.
It is compliant with the key international standards that facilitate interoperability and data transfer among Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums.
For an overview, see the tutorial “Putting Historical Data in Context: how to use DSpace-GLAM“.
WHY DO YOU NEED IT?

Visualise and analyse your data using grids, graphs, maps or by creating networks.
