Avalon Metadata in Hyrax: Letting the Hyrax In, Letting the Avalon Out

Join us for an update on Avalon metadata in Hyrax. The Avalon Media System is an open source system for managing and providing access to collections of digital audio and video. The project is led by the libraries of Indiana University Bloomington and Northwestern University and is funded in part by grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. We are working to incorporate Avalon descriptive, technical, and structural metadata into Hyrax, the open-source repository front end from the Samvera Community, creating an AudiovisualWork that can be added to Hyrax as a gem alongside other work types (like GenericWork and Image). We will share our progress so far, including mappings for bibliographic import functionality and how things look different between Avalon 6 and Avalon in Hyrax. Avalon in Hyrax will also be available as a standalone Hyrax application so we are both letting the Hyrax in and letting the Avalon out! Come see how these two critters are getting along!

Of particular interest to: Developers, Metadata people, Newcomers
