Phases:OverviewRequirementsUI/UX DesignDevelopment Sprints


Scope & Objectives

This group will explore the use of Display Sets to allow resources controlled by Admin Sets (for visibility and workflow control) to be organized into arbitrary groupings of resources.  This work is specifically looking to provide a solution for use cases that cannot fit into the limitations of Admin Sets.  Two current limitations of Admin Sets prevent arbitrary grouping.  1) a resource may exist in one-and-only-one Admin Set, and 2) Admin Sets may not be nested.

The group will also propose mockups for interacting with Display Sets with in Sufia and potentially Curation Concerns.

This group should be comprised of a balance of members from multiple institutions and varying use cases.  Ideally we will have members with Hydra stack implementation experience and/or UI design skills.  Members need to be able to commit to the following deliverables and timeframe.

Deliverables & Timeframe

Deliverables will include:

Documents will be delivered via the Hydra wiki.  Feedback will be solicited through hydra-tech list and Hydra Tech Calls.

The group will begin meeting in early January 2017.  The group's sunset date is currently scheduled for March 31st, 2017.
