Summer 2016 - Implementation of an automated workflow to package and deposit research data from cloud-hosted storage (Box) through Archivematica and into Hydra@Hull.
March 2017 - June 2019 - Providing an instance of Hydra, with GeoBlacklight and IIIF support to the University of Jisc Research Data Management Framework. Over the course of the contract we will be carrying out various enhancements to the platform, with a view to feeding back general changes to the community.
Oct 2015 - Mar 2016 - Development of a prototype discovery index for medieval manuscripts that combines traditional descriptive catalog records with user-enhanced information in the form of transcriptions and annotations.The discovery index is a web application that utilizes a customized Blacklight front-end coupled with a SOLR index.
Sep 2015 - Sep 2016 - Design and development of a simple demonstration workflow between a data repository and a data paper publisher, enabling researchers to easily publish datasets as peer reviewed data articles. The implementation takes the form of a API definition along with a reference implementation, in the form of a bridging application allowing researcher to submit references to their datasets from the institution / subject data repositories, create a data paper in accordance to the chosen publisher / journal requirements with the help of the application and once complete, submit the paper to the chosen journal. The application is based on Sufia 6
2007 to Current - Notch8 Software Services by Scientist.com was founded as a Rails Consultancy, with extensive experience in solr and complex devops. We have completed several Rails projects with UCSD, and are working with UCLA and UC Merced on a research opportunities portal.
2016 - Created a Detailed Server Architecture Plan and set up production servers with Fedora, Solr, Hydra, and Sufia. Servers are set up with Ansible scripts to create automation for easy redeployment for any outages or changes. Currently working with the American Theological Library Association and interested in working with more organizations.
2018 - 2019 - Partnered on two major Hyku pilot projects: the New York City Department of Records and Information Services (DORIS); and a joint project with the Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc. (PALCI) and the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana (PALNI). As part of these developments, we have made some significant contributions to the Hyku code, notably Bulkrax for import and export.
As 2020 progresses, Notch8 is proud to continue new phases of work with long-standing Samvera partners Atla and PALNI/PALCI. Additionally, we are contributing to major implementations with the US Department of Transportation's National Transportation Library and Yale University (the later in cross-community partnership with DCE). We are currently in development with Washington University in St. Louis on two Samvera projects: the Newman Numismatic Portal, and WUL's repository for ETD's and other research worksNotch8 by Rob Kaufman in 2007. Since then, we have grown to a team of sixteen developers and have worked on projects around the globe. Founded and based in San Diego, California, we have supported virtual employees for several years, with the entire company going full-time remote in 2020. Our team currently includes full-time staff based in three time zones and two countries (United States and Canada).

|Notch8SoftServ by Scientist.com
In June of 2019, Notch8 is launching SoftServ launched a hosted version of Hyku called HykuUP. Check out HykuUP.com for pricing and to sign up for the beta version today.
DevOps and Maintenance support: Notch8 SoftServ provides up time monitoring, error tracking, security monitoring and patching of applications. We can also offer additional help in setting up your deployments and scripts. These services are available on Notch8 SoftServ managed servers, or for projects hosted on external servers.

Ubiquity repositories (based on Hyku) are cloud hosted and open source, with no lock-in. Suitable for both large and small institutions, they provide high-quality hosting of publications, special collections, theses, Open Educational Resources and research data all in one place. The repositories are designed to be reputation-enhancing with attention to design, metrics and researcher engagement.
The platform is particularly well suited to multi-tenant solutions (for example see the UK Shared Research Repository) and as an open alternative to Bepress (for example see Pacific University's Common Knowledge repository, which is a successful migration). The platform also benefits from ongoing development of new features in the Advancing Hyku project.
Ubiquity repositories are also fully integrated with our open access publishing platform, providing journal, book, OER and research data publishing.
Ubiquity offers full support for migration, manages all cloud hosting, provides robust SLAs, as well as complete training and support. We also provide a dedicated account manager to assist with the ongoing development of your repository to ensure you get the most out of it.
