PALNI and PALCI have partnered to develop
Hyku for Consortia
An affordable, open source, and collaborative institutional repository solution based on the Hyku software. Funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Hyku for Consortia was developed with input from a community of users comprising the Hyku Commons. Pilot participants included libraries from partnering consortia VIVA and LOUIS, with development support from Software Services by Scientist.com.
Why Hyku for Consortia?
In the face of continued budgetary pressures, libraries seek cost-saving approaches to their work. Due to costs or other constraints, those unable to deploy institutional repository services are increasingly looking to consortia to serve this role. Hyku supports the repository needs of library groups by increasing affordability and flexibility in a scalable, multi-tenant environment.
As an entirely open and community-led repository service
Putting libraries back in the driver's seat when managing their digital assets
Allowing for a broad range of engagement across academic libraries of all types and sizes
With more than 50 tenants from four consortia currently comprising the Hyku Commons
