LG-Nat Digital Infrastructures - Project

The University of Oregon Libraries, in partnership with Oregon State University Libraries and Press, will develop a suite of analytics and reporting tools for Hyrax (an open source, Samvera-powered repository front end). This project will incorporate existing and emerging best practices for repository analytics with an eye towards balancing accuracy, data privacy, and functionality and contribute to a growing area of library research. Focusing on creating new dashboard functionality to enable repository managers to tell the story of their collections and their users, this project will help increase parity of this open-source infrastructure with third-party repository and analytics platforms. The work will contribute directly to Hyrax's community development initiatives, with all code contributions, documentation, and project updates made openly available and coordinated with platform stakeholders across the country and in alignment with identified Samvera community needs.
