Scholarly Activities: Integration between FACULTY180 and DSpace

An integration with DSpace is now available in FACULTY180 for scholarly activities. As a result of this integration, faculty members will be able to add files to the DSpace repository without leaving FACULTY180.

When adding scholarly activities in FACULTY180, faculty members can add files and the associated metadata directly to the DSpace repository as an attachment from FACULTY180. DSpace will then send FACULTY180 a link to the file in the DSpace repository – the link is stored in FACULTY180 with the associated scholarly activity. (This integration must be activated for your institution by DATA180.) 

To add a file to the DSpace repository through FACULTY180, do the following: 

  1. On the Faculty menu, click Activities, then click Scholarly Contributions & Creative Productions.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Select the type of activity to be added, then click Continue.
  4. In the Attachments section, select the DSpace file type. The Select DSpace Collection pop-up window opens.
  5. Select the appropriate Collection, then click Okay.
  6. Save your work.
