Advancing Hyku Project aims to support the growth of open access through institutional repositories by introducing significant structural improvements and new features to the Samvera Community’s Hyku Institutional Repository. Features include full metrics and altmetrics, ORCiD profile sync, auto-population, in-browser viewing and annotation, and pathways to long-term preservation. The project partners are University of Virginia Library, Ubiquity Press and the British Library, with funding from Arcadia, a charitable fund of philanthropists Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin. The project began October 2019 and is scheduled to conclude by August 2021.

This presentation will provide an update on the project which is coming to an end of its first year. Presenters will introduce the developments made so far, architectural review for structural improvements for the Hyku framework, collaborations to strengthen the project deliverables and the forthcoming plans for the coming year. The session also aims to receive feedback from the audience on the set of priorities within the project. This will kick off a wider community input opportunity following the event to leverage the outcome of the project. See https://advancinghyku.io/

Everyone is welcome at this presentation but it may be particularly suited to those in the following groups: administrators, developers, managers (general), managers (repository), metadata people, UI/UX people
