DSpace-CRIS: An Open Source CRIS Platform

DSpace-CRIS is a mixed repository-CRIS platform that was released by Cineca in November 2012 as an open source solution to enrich DSpace 1.8.2. It has been developed at first by Cineca to fulfill the need of Hong Kong University (HKU) of extending the information exposed by their Hub, hosted in DSpace. Indeed, those HEIs running a DSpace institutional repository and not wishing to implement a comprehensive and sophisticated CRIS system could choose to enhance their repository platforms by adding in specific CRIS features that will allow it to run as some kind of low-budget CRIS system.
