June 10 next call—may be light because of Open Repositories
Facilitator: Will Cowan
Notetaker: Chris Awre
How to encourage people to come up with agenda items?
-Pick working groups to report in
-Ask Steering Committee for agenda items
-Facilitator could call upon their network, directly ask colleagues
-DAMS system: Legacy-RDF custom code, AJAX front end. Been refactoring for last 2-3 years, looked at Islandora and Hydra; moved to Hydra, still have RDF back end, shim in place
-Digital Collections app- linked data aware, and complex object aware, not a self-deposit repository like Sufia
-Working with community on data modeling; focusing on descriptive now, previously
-Hosted a Dev Congress- a gem for SHARE came out of this congress
-Fedora4 migration is being tested
-CuratonConcerns or Sufia level development is a question still being explored
-Working with DevOps, moving away from Bamboo
-Storing objects in Fedora was discussed at the high level since UCSD is using Hydra as a front end for their DAMS, but Fedora is not on the backend.
-Merging CurationConcerns and Sufia back together is still open as a question that will be discussed more in the architecture working group.
-Is there some more documentation for CurationConcerns that is more friendly for less dev centric folks?
Not much apart from the ReadMe. Discussion about whether to form a tightly scoped working group for documentation. Be sure to loop in Jon Stroop at Princeton.
Metadata Working Group update (see wiki for meeting notes)
-3 groups: Technical, Rights, and Structural, all completed work last year.
-Baseline recommendations for technical, rights for Hydra apps.
-Structural group documented the current landscape.
-Descriptive is still active—best practices, metadata profile baseline.
Descriptive Subgroups: MODS and RDF. MODS working on crosswalks to RDF. Active development example.
-Applied linked data is active—exploring fragments, may be dissolving
-New working sub group, URI Management—first meeting will be next week. Working on recommendations on maintaining URIs.
-Slack Channel created for Metadata Working Group
DuraSpace Webinar Series about Hydra ideas for content
-Collecting what is already out there would be helpful as opposed to new content
-Server environments needed to support a Hydra application
-Explanation of points of departure from out of box functionality and decision making process about why
