Building Successful, Open Repository Software Ecosystems: Technology and Community
MetadataShow full item record
Archivematica, AtoM (Access to Memory), Fedora, Hydra, and Islandora provide a set of functions which contribute to a diverse curation and repository ecosystem. They are also projects existing in a greater open source ecosystem. Overlapping functionality and gaps among the tools available can make piecing together workflows and sharing solutions challenging. Sharing practices and collaborating on directions benefits each of the projects, as well as advances the objectives of the open repository community. This panel session offers a conversation about strategies to collaborate more efficiently and explore connections in the repository software ecosystem. Panelists will provide an overview of how each community operates, touching on the technological and social dimensions of community open-source project governance. We will look at how each of the communities collaborates with, learns from, challenges, and inspires the others, as well as how they engage other communities and organizations contributing to a thriving and more diverse repository ecosystem.
