Learn about new efforts at the University of Cincinnati’s Libraries to meet campus needs for long-term preservation and access to all types of digital scholarly output. Specifically, we will introduce two systems created through open source software development processes: Scholar@UC - – a self-submission institutional repository (IR), and the Open Journal Systems journal publishing platform. Scholar@UC is built on the Project Hydra framework, an cross-institution open source programming initiative, and has brought forth a dramatic transformation within our libraries and the campus. A panel of UC Libraries speakers will reflect on our engagement and development efforts. First, we will discuss outreach efforts to bring together a small set of “early adopter” faculty, and the process of assembling their feedback in personalized, interview-based settings. Then, we will describe the processes to transform this feedback into functional use cases that prioritize needs and desires. Finally, we will discuss building a small yet high-functioning software development team embracing agile development processes, and our collaborations with UC’s central IT department as well as other local/national development efforts. We will close with demonstrations of both systems and optional tours of spaces such as the software developer’s suite.
