Advancing Hyku, funded by Arcadia, a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin Shared Research Repository, hosted by British Library Hyku for Consortia, funded by Institute of Museum and Library Services and Leads from Hyku projects in various stages (active implementation, nearing launch, and ramping up) gathered for a lively panel session at Samvera Connect 2021. We started with brief updates on work done this past year across our projects on prioritizing community features. Included were discussion about what works in local installations, what works (and doesn’t) when contributing code back to the community core, and how we collaborate across projects in formal (shared Hyku Roadmap, meetings, documentation) and informal (Slack, email, telepathy?!?) ways. We ended the panel with an open call for community input on future community Hyku development priorities. Projects represented
Hyku is a solution based on the Hyrax engine. It takes the components of Samvera, and delivers a turn-key but customizable repository application. This presentation from Samvera Connect 2021 provides an update on the latest Hyku release, future plans, and the current status of Hyku pilot projects across the community as of October 2021.
