Repositories: Boston Public Library Joins Hydra Project
From the Hydra Project News Page:
In BPL’s letter of intent, David Leonard (Director of Administration and Technology) writes:
“As the oldest public library system in the country, the BPL holds a vast wealth of culturally significant materials in its collections, which we have been digitizing for many years. Until recently, a unified solution to describing and providing access to the tens of thousands of digital objects in our collection has proven elusive. We are currently in the process of creating a repository for the management and preservation of these digital objects based upon Hydra, Blacklight and Fedora.
