Added Hydra Proposals
Stanford is using Fedora4 for managing Open Annotations, via a middleware component called Triannon. Triannon receives the JSON data from the annotation client, and uses the Linked Data Platform API implementation in Fedora4 to create, retrieve, update and delete the constituent resources. Triannon could be easily modified to use other LDP implementations, or could be modified to work with linked data other than annotations.
== Hydras in the Wild: A survey of current projects ==
* Mark Bussey,, Data Curation Experts
You've seen the tutorials, but [ Dive Into Hydra] seems to leave something wanting. What can you really do using the Hydra Framework? This talks looks at a number of current Hydra projects and highlights the design and functional features unique to each. Compare and contrast UX, design and functional capabilites from a range of hydra-based repositories including:
* Avalon for media discovery and distribution (Indiana and Northwestern Univiersities)
* HydraDam for media archive management(WGBH)
* HyHull for general Institutional Repository needs (University of Hull)
* T-DIL for slide library functions (Tufts University)
* Sufia & Scholarsphere as a bundled self-deposit IR solution (Pennsylvania State University)
* Curate & Worthwhile as general purpose repository platforms (Multiple Insititutions)
This will be a whirlwind tour aimed at providing ideas and inspiration for your own repository development project.
== Hydra Makeovers! ==
* Alicia Cozine,, Data Curation Experts
* Patrick Feeley,, Case Western Reserve University
Compare two Hydra-based applications with the systems they replaced. Marvel at the Before and After snapshots of functionality, speed, and look & feel.
* '''Digital Case 2.0''' is an institutional repository, complete with administrative tools, derivatives transcoding, flexible XML metadata storage, embargo and lease capability, faceted searching, and content viewers for texts/TEI, images, audio recordings, and videos. Digital Case 2.0 is based on worthwhile, an open-source IR starter gem.
* '''The Tufts Digital Image Library''' is a specialized tool for art and art history resources, offering image collections with user access controls, image ordering, collection nesting, drag-and-drop organization, slideshows, and export capability.
Both new systems are built on hydra, the open-source Ruby-on-Rails repository solution that incorporates Fedora for storage, Solr for indexing, and Blacklight for search optimization. Their beauty is not just skin-deep!
