IMLS, who make Bridge2Hyku possible, have given University of Utah and Boston Public Library a grant for “Newspapers in Hydra.”
The project will create: (1) a shareable, system- and programming-language-agnostic RDF-based data model addressing structural and descriptive metadata features unique to digitized newspapers; (2) a set of modular, open-source plugins for the popular Hydra/Fedora digital repository framework for ingesting, describing, discovering, displaying, and disseminating digitized newspaper content; and (3) a community of practitioners — including developers, librarians, content specialists, and managers — dedicated to addressing challenges and collaborating on best practices associated with managing digitized newspapers. http://samvera.org/2017/04/19/imls-grants-two-hydra-related-projects/
