This presentation describes how we are adapting DSpace to build LERNZdb, a repository for storing and disseminating New Zealand freshwater quality data. While the original intention in this project was to build a database for individual measurements, the repository model turned out to be a very good starting point for meeting the requirements. This allowed us to re-use our DSpace expertise gained from working on institutional publications repositories. After a quick introduction to LERNZdb's aims, data and users, the main emphasis of this presentation is on our DSpace modifications.
