W10: Building a shared repository service using Samvera Hyku
Building a shared repository service using Samvera Hyku
1British Library, United Kingdom; 2Ubiquity Press
Samvera is an open source repository system with a growing user base. Since launch, two Samvera flavours have emerged: Hyrax, now with around 50 active repositories; and more recently Hyku, specifically designed to support multiple repositories on a single instance.
By June 2019, the British Library will be reaching the end of a pilot project to develop shared repository services using Hyku as the central platform for itself and four partners, British Museum, Tate, National Museums Scotland and MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology).
This workshop will cover:
The Samvera Hyku system, focusing on how it's being developed to meet expectations of the British Library’s project
The successes and challenges for the Library, our users and partners of developing a shared repository service.
The workshop aims to be useful for both business/repository managers and repository system colleagues. We aim to pitch it at a level that makes it accessible for the ‘simply interested and not too technical’ but with enough detail to provide genuine insight into the potential of Samvera Hyku. After introductory presentations, the audience will divide to focus on the two areas above, with the chance to dig into the detail and throw questions at our expert presenters.
