The display provides a vivid and real experience when reading the documents stored in the repository. The module is compatible with Dspace 3, 4 5 and 6, XMLUI.


The implementation of the module is done with specific technical adjustments to the ingest and visualization systems of DSpace, with the purpose of minimizing the impact on the repository operative, reducing the answering times while visualizing and adapting the display to the possible entry formats,(pdf, office).
