 ** Apologies for cross-posting **



Dear Colleagues



The Repositories Support Project (RSP) is pleased to announce the results o=
f
its Software Survey 2010.



The RSP software survey questioned the major repository software vendors on
the functional, technical and other aspects of their solutions. The results
are presented in a comparative table. The software included in the survey i=
s
CONTENTdm, Digital Commons, DigiTool, DSpace, EPrints, EQUELLA Repository,
Fedora, Islandora/ Fedora, intraLibrary, Open Repository and Microsoft
Zentity.



The results can be seen at http://www.rsp.ac.uk/software/surveyresults2010



This is an update to our earlier survey carried out in March 2009. The
results of the original survey can still be seen at
http://www.rsp.ac.uk/software/surveyresults.



The update includes additional questions to cover new technologies such as
Web 2.0 as well as greater detail on product costs. This is in addition to
the original survey sections such as:



=95             Supported Item Types

=95             User Interface Functions

=95             User Validation

=95             Software Platforms & Dependencies

=95             Machine-to-Machine Interoperability

=95             Administrators' Functions

=95             Documentation & Help

=95             Services

=95             Exemplar Repositories



Suppliers were asked to distinguish between features that are available now
in the current release of their software, and features that are still
undergoing testing or planned for the future.



We hope repository managers will find the survey results useful, especially
if they are in the process of specifying a new repository.



Regards
