Our Added Value To You
DSpace is an open source system, meaning the software is free to anyone to download, install and use. However, we offer a fully hosted services platform for DSpace to solve the practical problems organisations have in actually deploying the DSpace repository.
All for a small one-off setup and configuration cost of $1000 and a hosting fee of $150 per month for up to 10GB of storage.
If you require more custom configurations, such as changes to the interface, additional metadata, customised workflow or additional integration, we can undertake this work at our usual customisation and integration hourly rate. This includes workshopping requirements with the client, designing, prototyping, testing and implementing. Such work may cost between $3000 for straightforward customisations to $1000 for the more complex.
We recommend utilising handle.net's services for one-off registration for persistent URL's. This leaves the option of eventually running Dspace internally in your own institution open, without having to adjust any links to your documents - approximately $380 for 5 years
