What did you hear?
- Sustainability planning and progress; compelling to other interested parties; new and existing participants in projects; longer term plan and strategy
- Switch to sponsorship and membership is a good idea; ongoing commitment
- Membership model outreach should be tied to the rapid growth in last couple of years
- DuraSpace as a 3-legged stool going forward is a strong position
- Migrating to Fedora 4; our staff that has worked on it has gotten a lot out of doing that, UNC,
- Enhances long-term loyalty
What inspired you?
- Fedora 4 is well-organized and a good example for how DSpace could organize as well
- Fedora/VIVO connection was interesting
- "DuraSpace shops" what advantages could that provide; common language, standards, and knowledge base--linkages between products for institutions using more than one of them; more institutions might buy in if they were using more than one product
- Are there linkages or liaisons between projects? Governance first step?
- It was mentioned that one institution did not have the skills to implement VIVO--but are interested as a Fedora shop--how can we leverage platforms?
- More DuraCloud information
- --More info and discussion about Accepting audio and video deposits and do streaming
- --audio and video is a good place to start--need some comment from DuraSpace about how to go about this
- Where we see grant opportunities and what if institutions want to engage with DuraSpace to apply for grants
- --a statement from DuraSpace about grant opps would be helpful
- --We are all facing big issues where we could collaborate
- --Structure where DuraSpace can be responsive
- Developers have a system to track fixes--a version for non-developers that would allow for eyeballs on here are the latest trends at our institution and how can we begin to solve them
- More clarification and details on governance model
- How does it all fit together--DuraSpace projects and services--in the research and scholarship landscape?
