  • Subgroup Reports

    • URI Selection WG

      • Ryan Wick reporting - no real updates. New term submission which was mentioned last month. Not yet solidified/voted on. Possible need to determine a lower-tech method of publishing and maintaining these. May be related to the Samvera predicates already in use and how those should be declared and maintained.

    • MODS to RDF WG

      • Julie Hardesty reporting - not quite finished on the white paper. Very few outstanding comments. A few aspects still under review, reviewing earlier decisions for consistency. Ensuring the sizeable document is readable. Setting up mechanisms of connecting feedback.
    • Hyrax Metadata Ordering WG

      • Julie Hardesty reporting - summarizing and trying to figure out what a recommendation would be: if a) there’s a programmatic solution which they could recommend to make an update to the Hyrax codebase or b) they’d be documenting for how you do a local implementation. More solutions have arisen than were offered in the original Google Group thread and they’re looking at Valkyrie and WGBH and how they’re modeling roles, etc.
    • Geo Predicates WG
      • Met April 23rd. Continuing with our work plan. Re-assigned tasks to remaining group members.

      • Discussed the absence of/need for Geospatial IG chair

      • Working group will continue regardless of Geospatial IG status

      • No updates
  • Topics

    • Hyrax metadata documentation and assessment
      • Met yesterday (4/23), reviewed what exists, began moving through using some models laid out by Christina Harlow and Tom Johnson, have started reviewing most core fields, now working through the rest through dc:contributor

      • Ideally this will allow us to eventually contribute back to Hyrax documentation.

      • We can also review and contribute things to the Github issues which exist or make new issues.

      • Hyrax metadata documentation is also at 1.0, so this could be a prompt to revive developer documentation.

      • Next session on May 4, 11am, we’ll see where we are, review it, and then decide what we’re doing next (including meeting times)

    • Demo ideas
      • Nurax walkthrough
  • Questions
  • Next meeting - May 22
