1:10-1:20Hyrax and Archivematica: central to implementing digital preservation workflowsThe University of Hull has been partnering with CoSector to develop and implement a digital preservation infrastructure for the management of a digital archive for the UK City of Culture 2017. The infrastructure is based on a combination of systems that do they do best, with Hyrax and Archivematica central to the overall workflow. Following development in 2019, this talk provides an update on implementation of the infrastructure and reports on the lessons learned from turning an idea into practical reality.Librarians working with digital preservation, digital archivists, digital collection managersChris Awre, Laura Giles, Rory McNicholl (University of Hull and CoSector)

11:50-12:00Creating javascript components to provide rich user experiences for search and browseModern javascript frameworks like React and Vue facilitate building dynamic, rich user interfaces (like thematic sites or research tools). In this lightning talk, we'll show how we each built search components using these frameworks which use the Blacklight API but not the Blacklight UI. We'll also discuss how these components are being utilized and possibilities for making shared community javascript components.Developers, Repository or DAMS Managers, Metadata SpecialistsChris Colvard (Indiana University) and Rodrigo Cuéllar Hidalgo (El Colegio de México)

12:40-1:00Enhanced Preservation, Fewer Migrations: Fedora 6 and the Oxford Common File LayoutFedora 6, the next major version of Fedora, will focus on digital preservation by aligning with the Oxford Common File Layout (OCFL). The OFCL is an application-independent approach to the storage of digital objects in a structured, transparent, and predictable manner. This provides many benefits, including: parsability, both by humans and machines, to ensure content can be understood in the absence of original software; robustness against errors, corruption, and migration between storage technologies; versioning, so repositories can make changes to objects allowing its history to persist; storage diversity, to ensure content can be stored on diverse storage infrastructures including cloud object stores; and completeness, so that a repository can be rebuilt from the files it stores. This presentation will provide an overview of the Fedora 6 design, including a brief introduction to the OCFL and how it is being implemented, along with a summary of development progress to date and the anticipated timeline for the 6.0 release.Repository managers, developers, and anyone interested in learning more about the features of the next major Fedora release.David Wilcox (Duraspace)

1:10-1:20Relevancy and the Creation of Shared MeaningA major advantage of open source repositories is that search results and relevancy ranking can be tuned to our specific collections, as well as our users’ needs.

This lightning talk will explore how users, developers, and catalogers collaborate to create shared meaning in the form of search results and relevancy ranking, and will discuss what types of interventions can be made in that meaning-making process to allow user needs and search results to be more closely aligned.
