ArchivesSpace / Hydra Hacker Lounge

Session Type: Working Session

Session Description
Join members of the ArchivesSpace and Hydra communities in a session to discuss use cases and begin work to develop prototypes integrating the two products. ArchivesSpace, originally funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is a next-generation archives management system and is the successor to Archivists’ Toolkit and Archon. The Hydra Project is an international consortium that focuses on shared development of open-source digital repository services. The project gives like-minded institutions a mechanism to combine their individual repository development efforts into a collective solution with breadth and depth that exceeds the capacity of any individual institution to create, maintain, or enhance on its own.

Session Leader
