Proposed Discussion Topics
Please propose a topic that you would like discussed at the meeting. This can either be something you are interested in learning more about, or something that you are willing to present and/or facilitate discussion of. If you are willing to present/facilitate, please include that in your description. You can also propose a topic by emailing Chrissy Rissmeyer at UCSB (email@example.com) or Matt Critchlow at UCSD (MCritchlow@ucsd.edu).
Your feedback will be used to shape the agenda for the day. Please indicate your interest in the proposed topics by no later than 5pm on Wednesday, February 24.
|Proposed topics/sessions||Description||Proposed by||Interested in||Willing to present/facilitate|
|Compound Objects||Current implementations, pain points, and how PCDM might help||S. Rabun, M. Critchlow, A. Hutt|
S. Rabun, M. Critchlow, A. Hutt, C. Rissmeyer, T. Brittnacher, R. Johnson, M. Bussey, R. Jaffe
|Migration Techniques||Best practices for migrating from CDM --> Hydra (see notes) and F3 --> F4 (we're not there yet, but would be interested to hear from others)||S. Rabun||S. Rabun, N. Henry, R. Jaffe|
|Digital Preservation||What are others doing?||S. Rabun||S. Rabun, C. Rissmeyer, T. Brittnacher, R. Johnson|
|Self-Published URIs||Current implementations, pain points, etc. (I can present on opaque namespace if others are interested)||S. Rabun||S. Rabun, C. Rissmeyer, M. Critchlow, R. Johnson, M. Bussey||M. Bussey (facilitate)|
|Service and Dev Management||Has anyone else run into issues with prioritizing dev work, especially improving current platform vs. upgrading (for example F3 vs. F4)? How to make the case with admin for continuing to use Hydra when it seems to be monopolizing dev time/when there are other priorities/projects that need dev time? I'm curious to hear about others' experiences...||S. Rabun||S. Rabun, M. Critchlow, A. Hutt, M. Bussey, I. Lessing||S. Rabun|
|Data modeling||Can we share a base schema(s) (e.g. DC and/or DPLA) and build local specificity on top of that? Are there any "fundamentals" that would be useful or important to coordinate to make that work? For example encoding levels for subjects (complex/precoordinated vs. simple), representation of name entities and encoding of name types (personal, corporate, family), interpretations of the base layer concepts (temporal coverage vs. date).||A. Hutt||A. Hutt, C. Rissmeyer, T. Brittnacher, S. Rabun, M. Critchlow, R. Johnson, M. Bussey, R. Jaffe||A. Hutt|
|GeoBlacklight update||An informal overview of Geo4LibCamp 2016, held at Stanford in January, especially with respect to geospatial metadata and workflows. Discussion of issues surrounding the ingest of geospatial materials.||T. Brittnacher||T. Brittnacher, M. Critchlow, R. Johnson|
|Resource Sync||Has anyone else been investigating Resource Sync?||C. Rissmeyer||M. Critchlow, A. Hutt, M. Bussey|
|Representing Data Models||A. Hutt|
