This paper describes how the Irish National Digital Learning Resource Repository (NDLR) has implemented a DSpace-based platform which enables it to more effectively utilise its limited resources to serve customer need. The implementation of a DSpace-based solution in partnership with two private-sector service providers has permitted a refocusing of the available resources from software licensing to research and development of the platform.
