AUSpace content is organized around Communities which can correspond to administrative entities such as schools, departments, labs and research centers. Within each community there can be an unlimited number subcommunities and an unlimited number of collections. Each collection may contain an unlimited number of items. This organization gives AUSpace the flexibility to accommodate differing needs of communities by allowing them to
Decide on policies such as:
- who contributes content
- whether there will be a review process
- who will have access
Determine workflow - reviewing, editing, metadata
Each community has its own entry page displaying information, news and links reflecting the interests of that community, as well as a descriptive list of collections within the community.
