  • Julie will present on Hyku at a later date when more are present.
  • Lynette raised the issue of the confusion regarding the "visibility" term on the dashboard and what it means. People looking at a page were not sure whether it had to do with the visibility of the collection or admin set itself, or the works in that collection. Proposal to change the column names to "Collection discoverable by" or "Work discoverable by", as well as renaming the badge labels (all users, users with access, and institution users), and ensuring that all are added to the translation file so they can be customized.
    • Discussion:
      • Julie preferred "Collection visible to" as the title terminology, as people are used to the visibility term. Affirmed adding badges to translation, but preferred keeping the labels as is as the new suggestions are also unclear. letting individual institutions change as needed seems better.
      • Lynette noted that badge labels were suggested to keep them short.
      • LaRita noted that clarification of this issue is in the works on the documentation site (
    • Agreement to add all of these to the translations as suggested, but keep badge labels as they are.

  • No labels
