Collaborative efforts for all - Creating pathways to Hyrax 4.x + Fedora 6.x

The Samvera and Fedora communities have a long-standing relationship of collaboration and mutual support. Presently, there is growing interest across the communities to upgrade Hyrax instances backed by Fedora 6.x in institutions of varying sizes. But migrations are costly and resource intensive and there is always a risk, when the pathways forward are challenging, that people will be left behind.

This presentation will take a look into the collaborative work being done by stakeholders who straddle both communities to support those institutions on Hyrax who want to take advantage of the updated digital preservation capabilities offered by Fedora 6. We will discuss how the need came to our attention, and talk through the collaborative efforts these stakeholders have undertaken to serve users straddling both communities. Throughout the process, our focus has been entirely on building strength through listening, open dialogue and sharing resources and experience to bring all users forward.
