Many of you have likely seen this message on other lists to which you subscribe, but I figure it’s worth another plug here. One of the breakout session topics for the Member Meeting on August 22 is integrating ArchivesSpace with other systems, and I know Hydra is one of the systems of interest, with some work already underway in the community.

Do you manage digital collections? Are you interested in the future of repository solutions?

The Digital Public Library of America, Stanford University, and DuraSpace want to hear from you.

Take the Hydra-in-a-Box Survey:  https://stanforduniversity.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_bvCv54xcyfb5mo5<https://stanforduniversity.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_bvCv54xcyfb5mo5>

We are partnering to extend the existing Hydra project codebase and its vibrant and growing community to build, bundle, and promote a feature-rich, robust, flexible digital repository that is easy to install, configure, and maintain. This next-generation repository solution -- “Hydra in a Box” -- will work for institutions large and small, incorporating the capabilities and affordances to support networked resources and services in a shared, sustainable, nationwide platform. The overall intent is to develop a digital collections platform that is not just “on the web,” but “of the web.”

With funding from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, the 30-month collaborative project launched in May 2015<http://dp.la/info/2015/04/15/far-reaching-hydra-in-a-box-joint-initiative-funded-by-imls/> and is currently in the Product Design phase.  We are using the survey responses to better understand the current landscape of repository solutions in use by libraries, archives, and museums, and what these stakeholders need in an "ideal" repository solution.

Institutions of all sizes are invited to respond, including those who have digital collections not currently managed in a repository as well as those who manage multiple repositories.

Thank you in advance for your participation!

- The Hydra-in-a-Box team
