A recording of a panel presentation at Samvera Connect 2018 described thus and In this panel we will briefly discuss the current landscape of needs and reasons for users to consider moving from an established repository, and the challenges facing users of a variety of platforms, both cultural and technological. We will also consider work currently underway such as "Bridge to Hyku", a grant-sponsored project empowering Content DM users to migrate, successes in DSpace-to-Samvera migration and what's on the horizon for BePress. In discussing these challenges, we hope to present the Samvera Community with an opportunity to grow the portfolio of users and create the potential for standards and teams to assist those who wish to be a part of the Samvera Community.

A presentation at Samvera Connect 2019, originally titled "Creating a Vision for Samvera", described thus and As Samvera had undergone a shift it its governance over the past 2 years, Samvera Steering wanted to ask Partners to contribute to the creation of a vision for Samvera’s future. The visioning exercise was conducted in April 2019 at the Samvera Partners meeting, involved over 30 community members, and was facilitated by Hannah Frost and Carolyn Caizzi. This presentation will update the community about the process used, the outputs of the exercise, and about any ongoing work to further hone the vision of Samvera’s future.
Do you ever wonder what working groups exist in the Hydra community or what topics are being discussed or how to spark a discussion or a working group? We are proposing a framework for interest groups and working groups which has proven effective in other successful communities toward raising awareness, connecting members with common interests, spawning action oriented working groups and making time at face to face meetings in support of both "percolating" ideas and heads down work. Join us to explore how this framework can further empower our community. and A presentation at Hydra Connect #2 described thus
This annual report on the Hydra Project will provide a synopsis of the project’s current state from a high level perspective, including recent developments and important trends in adoption and activiity, the technical framework, the community framework, major projects and milestones, and where we may be going in the near future. With so much activity in so many different parts of the project, this session is a chance to take a step back from the many trees to survey the whole forest of the HydraSphere.

A workshop given at Samvera Connect 2018 described thus and If you are new to Samvera or considering adoption of Samvera products, this workshop is designed for you! Samvera is a community, a set of tools, and increasingly a collection of ready-to run applications to help build a digital repository for your institution. It is an open source and sustainable community. This workshop will provide an on-boarding and general entrée to the Samvera community for non coders. The workshop will begin with an overview of Samvera community and products– what is it, why is it different. It will showcase some applications that exist, and discuss the how the community at large works. The overview will be followed by a general technical overview designed for non-coders. The staff skills needed to maintain and contribute a Samvera solution will be discussed, resources that exist to get started, and how to contribute code to the community. The workshop will conclude with discussing how to pitch Samvera and get institutional support. It will discuss the advantages of being part of the community and how that strengthens the sustainability of the tools, the applications, and the community overall.
This session will be a brief introduction to the Hydra community, and a 35,000ft view of Hydra technically. It is an opportunity for people new to Hydra to get some context around what we are about and, hence, the rest of the conference! and An introductory presentation at Hydra Connect 2016, described thus
The recommendations of the Contribution Model Working Group were formally adopted by the Samvera Partners in early 2020. This document sets out the requirements for Partners which will be mandatory from spring 2022.
“In order to support centralized staffing the Samvera Community needs a strategy to raise significant funds on an ongoing basis. Partner discussions have supported the idea of a required contribution model that equitably distributes the burden. The contribution model will include both financial and in-kind staff time tiered options. Equity, good standing, how to value in-kind contributions, and incentives will be addressed in the proposed contribution model.” The work developed over two phases producing these reports. and The Samvera Contribution model Working Group was chartered to propose a model in support of the Governance Working Group recommendation that
