Repositories and the issues surrounding them are not unlike this image of an island. What looks straightforward on the surface can take you down once you start looking below the surface. It is my goal with this presentation to share our Kentucky story and how we are moving incrementally to what we feel is a sustainable solid solution for our campus.
Not a new issue for us. We started working on this a long time ago!I personally had this as my project with the Frye Institute in 2003!UK Libraries formally charged a group to work on this in 2007Needed campus participation and buy in!
This is the model for a repository that we included in that report. Many kinds of content sitting in one repository structure with various ways that content would be served out to users.Essentially we had it right. We just didn’t really know how to execute it. It was really clear this was NOT a library project – it was really big and required skills that we did not have internally
We started looking at options and settled on Digital Commons as an interface and user facing product that would meet many needs.
Allowed us to have a real conversation with faculty
Forced to migrate. Let’s do it right!Content: books, images, maps, finding aids… all straightforwardAdd in newspaper content, oral history interviews – audio, high def videoEric Weig, our Director of Digital Library Services sabbatical project to look at options
Micro-services are an approach to digital curation independent, but interoperable, services that Since each of the services is small and self-contained, they are collectively easier to develop, deploy, maintain, and enhance. Equally as important, they are more easily replaced when they have outlived their usefulness. Although the individual services are narrowly scoped, the complex function needed for effective curation emerges from the strategic combination of individual services.
One search across all contentFaceted discovery
Allow a different interface for UK content – Explore UK
Allowing us to start the conversations and develop partnerships on campus
Try to control this moving constantly changing landscape!
Each partner brings strengths
Agreed to start to actively pursue an enterprise wide repository

Trusted Digital Repository – holds all types of content in secure system supported by policies and procedures to ensure sustainability. Needs to be scalable and extensible.Mix of spinning disc, tape and cloud storage – various requirements for data security
The Hydra Project - Hydra's ultimate objective is to produce a community-sourced, sustainable application framework that provides rich and robust repository-powered solutions as an integrated part of an overall digital content management architecture.
