A workshop given at Samvera Connect 2017 described thus, Managing Samvera-based Projects and Services, and This hands-on workshop will cover tools and techniques to help managers decide whether to spin up a new Samvera repository, manage the process of building that repository, and maintain the repository once it is in production. We’ll cover the project lifecycle for migrating to Hyrax, defining roles within your team, keeping in sync with community development efforts, managing documentation, and managing user expectations and needs.
Fulcrum is in its third year of developing a publishing platform on Samvera (and is now running on Hyrax). Given the recent interest in possible successor solutions to Digital Commons / bepress, I think this could take the form of a workshop with 3 parts, 1. Presentation of the service model that Fulcrum is being built to support, 2. Presentation of the features and architecture of the platform, with an emphasis on Epub support and publishing workflows, A workshop given at Samvera Connect 2017 described thus, and 3. A group discussion of the kinds of publishing-related service requests attendees are hearing from their communities who are concerned about the Elsevier acquisition of Digital Commons / bepress, and what interest is there in a coordinated community effort around support for publishing and fully-encoded texts.
A workshop given at Samvera Connect 2017 described thus and Workshop going over the interface, configuration, patterns, and interaction points for using Valkyrie, a library to enable persisting metadata and files into a variety of different backends with a common interface.
Fedora is the flexible, extensible, open source repository platform that commonly underlies Samvera implementations. Fedora provides a number of core services that Samvera already uses, such as CRUD operations, versioning, and fixity, and several new, potentially useful extended services have been introduced within the last year. The API Extension Framework provides a means of binding services to repository objects in order to extend the functionality of Fedora, while the Import/Export Utility makes it easier to get content into and out of Fedora in standardized formats and packages. This workshop will introduce both of these new services and discuss how they might be used in the context of Samvera. Participants will also have an opportunity to try them out via hands-on exercises in combination with a virtual machine. and A workshop given at Samvera Connect 2017 described thus
Using Git and GitHub for managing metadata (no new data models, we promise)This session is proposed as a two-part workshop, A workshop given at Samvera Connect 2017 described thus, and The first will cover a modified version of the ‘Version Control with Git’ Software Carpentry lesson, tailored for a non-developer audience, with more focus on metadata. This is typically taught as a half-day (3 hour) workshop.The second part will focus on the use of Git and GitHub in the context of the metadata workflow. We will present examples and strategies, taken from recent work by UC Santa Barbara and UC San Diego, of version control, pull requests, and automated hooks and integrations as they relate to moving metadata through a workflow and into our repositories. In addition to these demonstrations, we hope to spend a good percentage of the time available in discussion with other interested institutions and how we might leverage our collective experience to make getting our metadata into our repositories easier, more consistent, and maybe even more fun!
