VuDL: Open Source Digital Library Administration

The Falvey Library at Villanova University has announced the Alpha Launch of VuDL: Open Source Digital Library Administration.
VuDL is a simple to use Digital Library Administration application powered by all open source technologies. With VuDL, you get:
  • METS metadata editor
  • Service image generation tools
  • XML database repository
  • Built-in OAI server
  • Built-in record drivers for easy implementation with VuFind
The core of VuDL's application is powered by Orbeon Forms, a powerful XML/XForms processor. eXist (a native XML database) and the server's file system combine to support the data and image repository.
VuDL is offered for free through the GPL open source license. You can modify the software and share your successes with the community!
