Impacts that Dryad has had beyond the repository itself.


Features developed for Dryad are frequently added to the core DSpace product. In some cases, Dryad supports primary development of the feature. In other cases, Dryad works with a group of DSpace community members to jointly develop a new feature. Major feature additions include:

  1. COinS support (for integration with bibilographic management tools like Zotero and Mendeley).
  2. Faceted searching based on the SOLR search framework (and several enhancements after the initial version was complete).
  3. Improvements to the DSpace OAI-PMH harvester to support harvest of large collections and collections that do not use sets.
  4. Improved workflow system for curatorial review process (released with DSpace 1.8, Fall 2011)
  5. Version control (released with DSpace 3.0, November 2012)
  6. Improvements to identifier handling (released with DSpace 3.0, November 2012)
  7. Authentication using the ORCID system. This code has been adopted by the DSpace CRIS module, and is likely to go into a future release of DSpace.
