<nettime> open source software--a comparative study


The Open Society Institute <http://www.soros.org/ip/index.php> has
released A Guide to Institutional Repository Software
<http://www.soros.org/openaccess/software/> , by Raym Crow. The guide
compares five programs, all OAI-compliant and all open-source. It includes
a detailed comparison
<http://www.soros.org/openaccess/software/OSI_Guide_to_Institutional_Rep
ository_Software_v1/css/OSI_Guide_to_Institutional_Repository_Software_v
1_10.htm> of features that should help an institution decide which package
best fits its needs and estimate how much support time it will require for
installation and maintenance. OSI offers the guide under the auspices of
the Budapest Open Access Initiative
<http://www.soros.org/openaccess/index.shtml> , and promises to update it
as the software evolves. 

(PS: This is badly needed. Let's hope that many more institutions can now
make a decision and start archiving.) (10/17/2003 7:55:55 AM)
