Samvera - Introduction to Community, Technology, and Value ***FULL***

  • Understand what Samvera is and how to participate
  • Understand how to use Samvera
  • Understand the value of Samvera

Samvera is a community, a set of tools, and a collection of ready-to run and hosted applications to help build a digital repository for your institution. The community drives the specification and development of sustainable open source technology and honing best practices for managing digital content. This workshop will provide an on-boarding and general entrée to the Samvera community and solutions for non-coders. The first part will provide an overview of Samvera solutions, hosting options and the community – what is it, why is it different? It will showcase applications solving a diverse set of needs and organizations, and discuss the how the community at large works to enable these. The second part will give a general technical overview designed for a non-technical audience. The resources needed to maintain and contribute to a hosted or custom Samvera solution will be discussed, resources that exist to get started will be highlighted plus how to contribute to the community technically and non-technically. The final part will discuss value and how to pitch Samvera and get institutional support. It will discuss the advantages of being part of the community and how that strengthens the sustainability of the tools, the applications, and the community overall.

Max: 30 persons

Hyrax & Hyku: A Hands-On User Side Intro ***FULL***
PLEASE NOTE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.  This workshop requires preparation and we need a final list of attendees several days in advance.  Unfortunately Sched does not allow the closing or capping of registration, but I will reach out to individuals to confirm attendance. 

Log in information for Thursday's workshop:

Time: Oct 22, 2020 10:00 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada)


Meeting ID: 898 2939 5251

Passcode: 590944

**NOTE: All attendees must send their confirmation and email address to kevin@notch8.com before end of day Monday 10/19 to ensure we can set you up with the course materials before the workshop** 
Without this, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accomodate you at the session.
  • 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

Samvera for AULs: how the Samvera Community can be part of your digital strategy ***FULL***

  • A knowledge of the Samvera Community, how it is structured and how it operates
  • A detailed appreciation of the Samvera vision statement and key elements within this to showcase how they can be of benefit to a library's strategic planning and delivery
  • An understanding of the ways in which library staff can engage and benefit from participation in the Samvera Community, exploring the benefits of broader involvement with colleagues beyond a local library
  • An insight into the ways that technical developments within the Samvera Community can support digital strategy
  • An appreciation of the ways that Samvera can support digital content management requirements and connect different areas of library activity
The aim of this workshop is to provide a space where senior staff involved in strategic planning can be introduced to Samvera and the Community, to hear about how Samvera can make a positive contribution to their digital strategy and how to make this work for them and their staff. The content of the workshop will be akin to the Introduction to Samvera session that has run before, but will be additional to this and focused specifically on addressing the strategic benefits that AUL and senior staff in organisations seek when engaging with external initiatives. Attendees are encouraged to make use of this workshop to discover what makes Samvera tick and how this can align with local strategic planning. Alongside content delivery there will be a focus on discussion and questions to help identify what the Samvera Community can offer, and what it needs to offer, to meet local requirements.
