DSpace captures, distributes and preserves digital research products. Here you can find articles, working papers, preprints, technical reports, conference papers and data sets in various digital formats. Content grows daily as new communities and collections are added to DSpace.
The DSpace 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.
Browse allows you to go through a list of items in some specified order:
Browse by Community/Collection takes you through the communities in alphabetical order and allows you to see the subcommunities and collections within each community.
Browse by Title allows you to move through an alphabetical list of all titles of items in DSpace.
Browse by Author allows you to move through an alphabetical list of all authors of items in DSpace.
Browse by Subject allows you to move through an alphabetical list of subjects assigned to items in DSpace.

Multiple files: an element can consist of more than one file in DSpace. A common example of this would be an HTML file with references to image files (such as JPG or GIF files).
Another example of this would be an article supplemented with a video simulation and a data file. The information you complete will form the metadata record that will allow users to retrieve their item using the search engines. The richer the metadata, the more "accessible" your article will be, so take the time to complete as many fields as are applicable to your article.

In the upper part there is a search engine for the different identifiers (ORCID, CURP, DNI, CVU) By clicking on the "Add more" button, you can add up to 5 authors and contributors as necessary.
