Valkyrie is a new persistence layer for Samvera, designed to address performance and sustainability problems. It was developed through the existing Samvera Working Group process, showing that the current Samvera community governance structure can be used to tackle big problems.
Valkyrie features pluggable persistence options, allowing Samvera applications to use not just the historical combination of Fedora and Solr, but also other options like Fedora or Solr by themselves, PostgreSQL, and local disk. Allowing Samvera applications to use different persistence options refocuses the Samvera community, shifting away from persistence in Fedora as the defining aspect of the community. Instead, the focus shifts to the shared tools built by the community.

Actor Refactor Contractor
The 'Actor Stack' is an important but little understood point of extension in Hyrax and CurationConcerns applications. This talk will explore the actor stack through a critical lens. Questions addressed include: How does the stack work? How can I best approach customization? What are the pain points? How did we get here? Where might we go next?

Title: Avalon’s Audiovisual Work in Hyrax: It’s about time
Avalon Media System is working towards a release to integrate with Hyrax in support of time-based media formats. This includes creating a Work type to support the needs of audio and video formats and provide an upgrade path for those who have been using Avalon in it’s previous releases as a standalone Samvera product. Join us for a look at the new Audiovisual Work type, specifically how we’re transitioning descriptive metadata from MODS XML to RDF.

Title: An Update on the Hyrax Roadmap
At Samvera Connect 2017, we presented a draft roadmap for the Hyrax 2.x-3.x release series. Since then, much work has been done to fulfill the promise of that roadmap, and work continues. In this talk we'll quickly review the roadmap, discuss the current status of work on Hyrax, and call for participation in future development efforts to bring Hyrax to 3.0 as soon as feasible.

Title: What are we going to do with the Hyrax Working Group?
At the Spring 2018 Partners Meeting, we formed a working group to focus a dedicated team of developers on supporting Hyrax. In this presentation, we will discuss where the working group stands, what our vision is for how the working group will function and what they will focus their efforts on, and plans for the sustainability of the working group moving forward.

Title: Taking the self out of self-deposit: adapting Hyrax for mediated deposit of research data
Abstract: Over the course of the last six months, Duke University Libraries have been engaged in adjusting some of the native features of Hyrax in order to support a research data curation workflow that is heavily mediated and may involve extensive pre-publication alterations to files and their arrangement or description. This presentation will cover how we've adapted a Hyrax application to facilitate research data curation best practices, using the FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) data guidelines as a framework.
