CLARINO gets DSpace

The LINDAT center in the Czech Republic, implemented with DSpace, has become an exemplary CLARIN center.  It is now serving as example for the CLARINO center at the University Library at Bergen. Supported by a CLARIN mobility action, Jozef Misutka has traveled from Prague to Bergen from August 19 to 23, 2013 and assisted Øyvind Gjesdal in implementing a DSpace repository with extensions to achieve compatibility with CLARIN and META-SHARE. A few issues remain, but it is expected that the CLARINO center at Bergen will become operative in September 2013.
