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.
