Z. Smith Reynolds Library (ZSR) embraces an open-source ethos for library technology. In support of that ethos, ZSR adopted DSpace as its institutional repository platform in 2009. Through WakeSpace, a DSpace instance, we provide access to digital special collections as well as Wake Forest University faculty and student scholarship. Although some functionality is supported out of the box, considerable staff time must be devoted to developing interface improvements. Chelcie Juliet Rowell, Digital Initiatives Librarian, will discuss advantage and disadvantages of adopting DSpace, its impact on the ZSR community, and goals for future development. A presentation at the Society of North Carolina Archivists 2014 Annual Conference.
