Head, Repository and Digital Curation, Libraries
The aim of Samvera (formerly Hydra Project), both as a community and as a technology stack, is to work together to deliver common core repository functionality that can be utilized for a wide variety of use cases. As the open-source community grew over the past decade, changes in governance, technology, resourcing, and community engagement were inevitable. Using the framework in the It Takes a Village Guidebook, the presentation will discuss the recent changes in the Samvera Community to the phases identified in the Guidebook. Lastly, the update will also discuss the successes and lessons learned over a decade of growth, and it will articulate a future vision for Samvera.
