Abstract

Repository managers increasingly use toolkits such as DSpace to manage submission of and access to resources. However, DSpace does not support the highly desirable distributed replication functionality provided by LOCKSS. This paper describes an experiment to seamlessly interconnect DSpace and LOCKSS in a generalisable manner. An experimental prototype confirms that this is indeed possible, and that the interoperation can be efficient within the constraints of the systems.
