Common approaches to service management for an implemented Hydra head (e.g., ScholarSphere, Stanford Digital Repository, etc.) - what if we could come up with requirements for a service manager toolkit? Or some such.
Hydra UX - how is the Hydra community engaging users of their products as they’re being developed and maintaining that outward-facing perspective as a service is launched and evolves? What are common methods/tools/approaches we could be sharing and putting out there for others to test out/critique/adopt?
|WG, PS||Patricia Hswe|
Mediated deposit approaches/workflows - where do you start, and what are the critical paths for building this arm of a Hydra-based service, especially if one already has the self-deposit component well in place?
Metadata workflows/management and Hydra - I’m interested in hearing folks’ ideas on this and getting an overview of how the community is addressing it.
Strategic hiring and position development for Hydra shops in libraries. What kinds of roles are emerging or being re-cast/re-thought as the result of expanded, deepening commitment to a Hydra infrastructure at academic libraries?
