This is a draft charter that has not been submitted to the Steering Group
Many institutions affiliated with the Hydra project are developing or searching for tools to integrate, republish, or migrate content presently stored in CONTENTdm with Hydra applications. The Hydra-Cdm Interest Group aims to serve directly as a Working Group that is charged to identify and elaborate best-of-breed tools to facilitate access to this content.
Shared Needs and Requirements
Working group participants need ruby tooling and associated documentation for accessing the CONTENTdm web APIs and patterns for mapping CONTENTdm content and metadata into Hydra models, e.g. Hyrax.
A participating institution can harvest content from CONTENTdm for local storage.
A participating institution can migrate CONTENTdm items and data into a Hyku repository (local or hosted).
Recommendations for ruby libraries to retrieve item data and metadata via the CONTENTdm APIs
Documented patterns for migrating/republishing retrieved CONTENTdm data into a Hyku repository
Hyku presenters that provide feature parity with CONTENTdm in displaying extracted items and data
Participating Community Members
Communications to the Hydra lists concerning this WG will include [Cdm-Migrate] in the subject line.
