<p>It is highly recommended that you read the documentation for DSpace
first, before following the instructions on this page. If you have already downloaded <span class=SpellE>DSpace</span> this
can be found in the /docs subdirectory of the source-folder.  Alternatively
find it online at <a

<h2>Building <span class=SpellE>Mediateca</span> and <span class=SpellE>Mediateca</span>-Admin</h2>
<p><span class=SpellE>Mediateca</span> currently does not include a <span class=SpellE>DSpace</span> installation.&nbsp; You
have to download and build your own <span class=SpellE>DSpace</span> installation
before you can install <span class=SpellE>Mediateca</span>.&nbsp; <span
class=SpellE>DSpace</span> has a complex installation process.&nbsp; In future
versions of <span class=SpellE>Mediateca</span>, it is anticipated that <span
class=SpellE>DSpace</span> will be packaged with <span class=SpellE>Mediateca</span>.</p>
<p>Download the current installation of <span class=SpellE>DSpace</span> from or by CVS.</p>
<p>Find the instructions for installation of <span
class=SpellE>DSpace</span> provided at <a
Ensure you have the prerequisite software, including a working installation
of Tomcat as well as the required <span class=SpellE>PostgreSQL</span> JDBC
drivers.&nbsp; If you are installing <span class=SpellE>DSpace</span> on
Windows find additional instructions at <a
href=""></a>. &nbsp;</p>
<p>Follow the instructions in <i>Quick Installation Steps</i> to install <span class=SpellE>DSpace</span>.&nbsp; However
you do not need to copy the </p>
<p><span class=SpellE>DSpace</span> and <span class=SpellE>Mediateca</span> should,
in theory, be able to peacefully <span class=GramE>cohabit</span> the same
system.&nbsp; However it is likely that you wish only to install one.&nbsp; In
which case, omit step 8 from the <i>Quick Installation Steps</i>.</p>
<p><span class=GramE>Copy <span class=SpellE>mediatecapro.jar</span> from /<span class=SpellE>mediatecapro</span>/lib
(or c:\mediatecapro\lib on Windows) to the /<span class=SpellE>WebContent</span>/WEB-INF/lib/.</span></p>
<p>Copy the <span class=SpellE>PostgresSQL</span> JDBC driver jar file to the
/<span class=SpellE>WebContent</span>/WEB-INF/lib folders.</p>
