  • Welcome Emma Beck, University of Louisville, as SMIG co-facilitator!

    • Will be at next meeting!

    • Part of Hyku community

  • Roadmaps Alignment Group Update - Heather

  • OAI Documentation Working Group Update - Annamarie

    • Invited developers to discuss what it takes to install OAI with Blacklight (only method used by participating institutions)

    • There are some differences between what these institutions are doing, versions of OAI are also making a difference

    • OAI use cases - DPLA , EBSCO discovery service, importing with Bulkrax

  • Presentation on Adventist Digital Library’s use of Bulkrax - Katharine Van Arsdale, Andrews University

    • Presentation recording

    • Hyku with tenants - using it for institutional repositories

    • Import with OAI and import with CSV

    • Modify metadata with CSV

    • Export (currently broken, doesn’t export what you tell it to export)

    • OAI import - hope to use this set to more frequent (repeating imports with same feed); migrating from Islandora/MODS

      • Offset kind of coincides with Frequency (using same OAI feed, have to offset to a specific record number to pick up a new import)


      • Zip file of CSV and file directory containing image files - limited size because of image file size (probably 25 Image works is limit they experience)
