Tom: Hydra’s goals are to combine the power of a repository for enterprise-scale digital asset management and preservation, with tailored interfaces, workflows and access systems specific to different content types and streams–e.g., articles vs. images vs. time-based media vs. books vs. data. The project started in 2009 when three universities (Hull, Stanford, Virginia) plus Fedora Commons came together to see if they could jointly develop a flexible application framework to complement Fedora. The project motto quickly became “if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together”, and we’ve spent as much energy on building a vibrant and sustainable community as we have on the code.
