This paper presents the main features and functionalities of DSpace@UCLV, the first of several digital repositories developed by the Universidad Central "Marta Abreu" de Las Villas to socialize, preserve and increase the visibility of the scientific and academic productivity.

At this moment Dspace@UCLV stores more than 4800 thesis, the number of documents will increase annually through the self-archiving of scientific output of professors and researchers.
