DSpace is the world-leading open-source repository platform with more than 2200 installations. DSpace allows easy management of digital assets, with web UIs to upload, describe and access content. 4Science added IIIF capabilities to DSpace, through a dedicated add-on, so that images and image collections can be accessed and shared with a IIIF viewer. Out-of-box, an enhanced version of the Universal Viewer client is integrated, providing smooth access to the images archived in DSpace. The add-on can embed any IIIF Image API servers such as Digilib, IIPImage, etc. and implements the IIIF Image API, IIIF Presentation API, IIIF Search API. The DSpace DRM policies defined for the single image or collection (open access, embargo, reserved access) are enforced in the IIIF player. DSpace has also be enriched with other relevant modules such as a PDF viewer, OCR, audio/video streaming.
