We are delighted to announce that Yale University has become the Hydra Project’s 18th formal partner.
Susan Gibbons, the University Librarian, tells us that Yale made a decision in fall 2012 to use Hydra as a development platform for their digital collections. The first Hydra-based collections are due to go live in September 2013 and there is an “aggressive plan” to migrate dozens of additional collections from obsolete platforms to Hydra in 2014 along with several new ones. Many of the collections involve complex objects, non-Western languages and have highly granular access requirements.
We greatly look forward to the collaboration. Welcome Yale!
