The poster reports our experience of using DSpace Manakin for Starlink Video Repository. The project is a cooperation between STARLINK (Richardson, TX) and TxCDK of University of North Texas, under the supervision of Dr. William Moen. The project uses DSpace v.1.5 Manakin to create a dynamic digital repository system to store, manage and present STARLINK's various video collections. STARLINK has recently successfully launched its Ideas Collection with the new depository with much improved user interface and seamless integration with STARLINK's existing web site. More collection will be added to the depository for more streamlined operation. The project showcases DSpace as a low-cost and flexible platform appropriate for educational institution like STARLINK to run a web-based depository system for better resource sharing and user interaction. The poster will also discuss the challenges the project faced in customizing DSpace to provide different types of access for subscription and non-subscription users, and DSpace Manakinâ s better interface design functionalities.
