Current Roadmap
(6 mos - 1 yr)

Proposed/Beyond One YearCompleted

The Hyku Project

“Hyku” is the result of the Hydra-in-a-Box, IMLS grant-funded project. It was developed as a turnkey solution bundle for digital asset management by the Samvera (previously known as Hydra) community. Hosted solutions are in development with a goal to lower the barrier of entry and expand the number and diversity of institutions capable of leveraging this powerful digital repository platform.


Targeted within the Next Year (from today)

Listed roughly in priority order and the expected order of implementation.  Some efforts may be implemented at the same time.  The priority order may shift based on available resources and community interest.
