AGENDA & NOTES
Welcome to the first meeting with our new name! Pronounce at will.
- The Michigan Daily Archives: Newspapers in Blacklight & IIIF (Chris Powell, University of Michigan)
Student newspaper publishing since 1890. Have wanted to put online for a decade, but now have done so in time for the bicentennial.
Is not a Samvera project per se, but uses Blacklight, Solr and IIIF. Chris gave a live demonstration of the search and faceting, page turning, and ability to download.
Future plans include abstracting this work and extracting gems to share with the rest of the community.
- Will Cowan shared that Indiana is using Plum to run a newspaper project - trying to solve the OCR and search problem. Getting close to having it go live.
- Likes the way it handles image uploading, page turning ability
- Uses IIIF universal viewer
- Mentioned Newspaper interest group within the Samvera Community
- Princeton has migrated Plum to Hyrax
- Reminder - sign up for Samvera Virtual Connect - to attend, to give a lightning talk, to give anIG/WG update
- Any partners running Hyrax 1.01 in production? (Carolyn)
- Emory will be in production soon (by the end of June)
- Cincinnati will be up soon, as will be Michigan
- Mike's list:
Hyrax Implementations - view and add to this list
- Mike Giarlo gave an update on the group that is working on "Defining roles, responsibilities, and decision-making frameworks that would help us work together effectively as a community, and mitigate some of our commonly identified problems." That group will be meeting again soon and Mike will give an update on the July partner call.
- For next month's Samvera Partner call, Mike Giarlo will take notes, and Dan Coughlin will facilitate.
