This group will analyze and compare the solutions for ordering metadata fields in Hyrax offered on the Samvera Tech Google Group thread (see Resources). Commonalities, benefits, and challenges will be noted for each option and a determination will be made whether to incorporate a solution into the codebase for Hyrax or offer recommendations as part of Hyrax documentation.
Deliverables and Timeframe
Analyze offered solutions to metadata ordering, identifying commonalities
Acquire further information on the offered solutions if necessary
Provide a comparison of the challenges and benefits of different methods being used to establish metadata ordering
Make recommendation for incorporating solution into Hyrax codebase
This work should take no longer than 2 months from the first working group meeting.
Sunset milestone: The work of this group will be completed by June 30, 2018 (by Samvera Virtual Connect).
Meetings will be held at most bi-weekly during the time the working group is active via conference call/video chat. Meeting agendas and notes will be shared with the community via chat (Slack) and Samvera Lists (Google Groups). Members of the group may wish to meet more often as needed.
Meeting time and connection information will be defined when the Working Group forms.
