Mark writes \"Sally Atwood of Technology Review about DSpace, MIT\'s super archive. \"
DSpace is not the only digital archive in the United States, but it does occupy unique ground. “If you look at the landscape of digital repositories, there seem to be two types,” says MacKenzie Smith, associate director for technology for the MIT Libraries and the Institute’s project manager for DSpace. “One concerns library holdings that happen to be in digital format. The other is a preprint archive that is tailored to scholarly papers in a discipline and is a vehicle for getting them out quickly. They are not concerned with long-term preservation.” DSpace, however, is committed to preserving not only published papers, but also their supporting documentation.
