    • Controlled vocabulary options in Hyrax
      • Julie presented Making Hyrax more inclusive through vocabulary choice as lightning talk at Samvera Virtual Connect - wondering if there's interest in talking about this some more and doing something? Willing to facilitate conversation outside of SMIG Meeting and see if this indicates the need for a working group.
      • Idea is to provide more controlled vocabulary options as default in Hyrax from historically marginalized communities (for Subject and Keyword fields, but possibly others as well). Things to consider:
        • What vocabularies are out there and what is their format now? (see Classification Schemes and CVs Google spreadsheet for what Julie has gathered so far)
        • Do we need to contact manager/maintainer of vocabulary to discuss options for including in Hyrax?
        • Do vocabularies need to be in Linked Data format and if they are not, can we provide that format through something like the Samvera Community Vocabulary Manager or can we include vocabularies some other way (local vocabulary that is part of Hyrax, something like the rdf-vocab gem) without needing Linked Data?
