Unfortunately, in GS2, no such function has been designed to export records to DSpace yet. However, the good news is that we have decided to give it a go. We are currently working at designing an exporter to export GS collections to DSpace and an DSpacePlugin to import the collection from DSpace.
In the meantime, I would suggest you to refer to the DSpace on-line document.:
DSpace System Documentation: Application Layer. Section: Item Importer and Exporter. http://dspace.org/technology/system-docs/application.html
This document provides you some examples on how to import batches of files to DSpace. For example,
For importing batch of records, DSpace has a simple archive format, one directory per document, see below:
dublin_core.xml => is equalivalent to GS2: metadata.xml but in dublin core.
contents => listing all the files that make up the document
In GS2, all the source files are stored in the /gsdl/collect/collection_name/import directory. If you could organise these files manually into DSpace's required structure, you should be able to import them into your DSpace system for now. Of course, we will inform you once the new development has been completed.
Hope this is useful!
