Julie requesting/proposing whether a group could examine what’s out there and consider these… Suggests working group (Ruth seconds) will talk with Steve van Tuyl about making up a short-term wg proposal.
Julie: Do we want to have a metadata representation on the Hyrax roadmap? With Hyrax having come out of IR work, they may be trying to shift it toward representing digital collections and general digital management work.

Hyrax descriptive metadata
Issues arising with Avalon, which will be using Hyrax (in Avalon). Trying to work out the concept of an Avalon worktype or a media worktype. Avalon descriptive data is MODS-based/catalog-record based, not specific to audio or video. More fields and more types of information than what Hyrax supplies out of the box.
Similarly, the elements being mapped from MODS->RDF comes up with a larger list of fields than what Hyrax has out of the box.
Per Mike Giarlo, It might be possible to expand on this but would require a migration path for people who are already using it.
