Organizations seeking Samvera solutions may have an internal development team, yet find they require external supplemental developers due to internal resource limitations or to bridge a specific technical knowledge gap. Collaborating among divided internal/external teams can be be a productive way of reaching goals within committed timelines, but also has its challenges. We present case studies of Samvera projects that utilized external development resources, highlighting the effects on productivity and budget. We'll also share advice on ways to effectively integrate and maximize a partnership with external developers, including the benefits of their unique experience. Discussion will include effective collaboration tools and other tips to ensure a successful implementation.

Case Study: NU’s Experience with a HEAR Stack (Hyrax, Elasticsearch, AWS and React) after a Year in Production

Presentation

Of particular interest to: Administrators, Design/UX people, Developers, Managers

Nabeela Jaffer, Jim Halliday

The University of Michigan and Indiana University collaboration on the development of a research data repository application based on Hyrax, started back in November, 2018. The shared repo, “chimera”, is on samvera-labs GitHub. We will be sharing the progress of the collaborative work so far, and what’s to come in the near future!

Adam Arling, Karen Shaw

We’ll lead a birds eye view walkthrough on how Northwestern’s Repository and Digital Curation Department combined Hyrax, Elasticsearch, AWS, and ReactJS into a system for ingesting and presenting content.  What worked?  What didn’t?  Where does HEAR go now?

Collaborative Research Data Repository with Hyrax

Presentation

Of particular interest to: Administrators, Design/UX people, Developers, Managers, Metadata people

Julie Allinson, Mark Bussey

Many institutions need to import, export, and migrate data in bulk, and the ability to do this easily should be a fundamental service offered by any repository. For Hyrax, there are a range of home-grown and community solutions focused on specific use cases but there are no easily reusable community solutions. That’s starting to change and we’d like to talk about our specific experience building ‘Bulkrax’ and ‘Zizia’, two bulk import-export engines for Hyrax. This talk will outline the current status of our two projects, covering the design and approach taken, alongside features such as OAI-PMH import, and CSV import and export. We'll also talk about where Bulkrax and Zizia are going in the near future. We’ll show how each can be adopted, configured, and extended to meet local use cases, and how these projects are meeting the

Community approaches to bulk import and export

We’ll show how each can be adopted, configured, and extended to meet local use cases, and how these projects are meeting the requirements set out by 2018’s ‘Batch Import-Export Working Group’. We’ll also discuss how best to move forward as a community around this issue: This will mean developing not only software but also shared community practice for managing the flow of bulk metadata from legacy systems and digitization projects into Samvera repositories.

As Samvera had undergone a shift it its governance over the past 2 years, Samvera Steering wanted to ask Partners to contribute to the creation of a vision for Samvera’s future. The visioning exercise was conducted in April 2019 at the Samvera Partners meeting, involved over 30 community members, and was facilitated by Hannah Frost and Carolyn Caizzi. This presentation will update the community about the process used, the outputs of the exercise, and about any ongoing work to further hone the vision of Samvera’s future.

Describing your app's data with GraphQL, React and Elixir

Presentation

Of particular interest to: Administrators, Design/UX people, Developers, Managers

Adam Arling, Karen Shaw

The GraphQL language and runtime environment presents an opportunity to maintain independence and efficiency between component-driven UI and multiple back-end data stores. Our presentation will highlight high-level concepts surrounding GraphQL, how its used, and how it differs from traditional REST API implementations. We aim to demonstrate these concepts through a Northwestern Libraries ingestion application featuring Elixir, Absinthe, React, Apollo Client, and GraphQLof a vision for Samvera’s future.
