  • Gain a hands-on understanding of Hyrax and Hyku basic capabilities
  • Understand the practical differences between Hyrax and Hyku
Make your very own repository! Hyrax and Hyku are popular Samvera software solutions that respond to many repository use cases - ETD's, special collections, publication of organization documents and artifacts, etc. There are even hosted, turnkey Hyku services available, which make these solutions approachable for users with few technical resources. However, among a field of repository options, it can be difficult to see through the technical jargon to understand just what Hyrax and Hyku offer the user, and what the difference is between the two platforms. Notch8 will lead a 90-minute user-side, hands-on walkthrough of Hyku, offering a broad preview of what these platforms are capable of. In this workshop, users will:
  • Explore the public interface, including search and browse
  • Explore the user dashboard, including creating and editing a work
  • Explore the admin dashboard, including admin sets and collections management"
Your own computer with a standard internet browser - preferably Chrome, Firefox, or Safari

Max: 30 persons
