From Atmire   Are your considering to migrate your current repository to DSpace but you are wondering what the options are? Over the years, Atmire has carried out migrations from a variety of platforms such as EPrints, Fedora, Digital Commons, CONTENTdm, DigiTool, Equella and homegrown software. Because of its wide array of commonly used import facilities and formats, migrating to DSpace may require less work and introduce less risk than you may think.

From Bram Luyten, Atmire  As the most widely adopted repository platform, supported by a vast international community, DSpace is an open source marvel. However, using it to build and operate a world class repository service has not been a trivial task for many institutions.
