The Digital Library & Programming group is pleased to announce that we’ve hit a major milestone the development of the Hydra digital repository system at YUL. Communication and syncing between repository system components became fully automated at the end of September 2014. This automation applies not just to work on the infrastructure built for the Kissinger papers, but for all Ladybird/Hydra interaction.
Automation like this allows metadata and objects to travel within the Hydra system without intervention, which in turn allows Library IT to focus more intensely on structural and workflow development. As a Project Hydra partner, Yale is now in the position to share this work with the Project Hydra community, and empower those members to scale up their own repository ingest services.
