Dspace Deposit Application

I have created free application for depositing different material from your desktop directly to your library, faculty or university school Dspace repository. Your schools Dspace administrator should easily understand these settings, so let him know about this!

With this application you can:
  • deposit
  • describe deposit
  • application automatically extract metadata from DOCX, PPTX and XLSX files while depositing
  • categorize (type field is inserted)
  • delete record from Dspace
  • store settings for different repositories and access them with a click of a mouse
  • easily dowload any file in repository
  • list all collection in repository and their description

DSpace repository version 1.6+
Tomcat http server (service, tested with version 6 and 7)
Configuration notes
Used sword settings:

sword.accepts = application/zip
sword.expose-communities = true
sword.expose-items = true
-        above expose parameters (default is false) will enable details about repository communities and documents in the sword listings.
Add content below to enable  type in the MODS meta schema
MODS  [dspace]/script/crosswalks/mods-submission.xsl
<!-- **** MODS genre ====> DC type **** -->
<xsl:template match="*[local-name()='genre']">
<xsl:element name="dim:field">
<xsl:attribute name="mdschema">dc</xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="element">type</xsl:attribute>
         <xsl:attribute name="lang">en_US</xsl:attribute>
<xsl:value-of select="normalize-space(.)"/>

There is only Windows version of app, it should work fine under XP, Vista and 7
