The Hyku Interest Group meets to discuss the Hyku repository application. Based on Hyrax, Hyku is intended to be an easy-to-install, easy-to-configure, feature-rich multi-tenancy solution. Hyku is designed to reduce barriers to effective asset management and preservation for collections and content types of many kinds.
The Samvera Metadata Interest Group (SMIG) is interested in working together on base metadata recommendations for the Samvera Community.

Types of metadata for which the group has or intends to create recommendations include technical, structural, descriptive, and rights metadata.

The Group provides collective input on the Hyrax roadmap and feature development, providing use cases, proposals, and providing real-time input on implementation of features.
The Samvera User Experience (UX) interest group meets to discuss any aspect of the user experience, including usability, design, UX methods, and user interface consistency. The purpose of these discussions is to improve users' experiences with applications and systems. Such improvements are expected to occur through sharing of information and expertise across projects and institutions.
