Oregon Digital is a successful partnership between the University of Oregon and Oregon State University working on shared digital collections and infrastructure. Since Oregon Digital’s launch in 2009, they have embraced the idea that innovation through collaboration makes them stronger and allows them to go farther, an ethos echoed through the Hydra Project. Over the last year, they have been working on migrating their shared infrastructure to Hydra and developing tools to make migration easier for not only Oregon but also the broader digital library community.
The institutions that make up Oregon Digital are experienced with the powerful results of collaboration, innovation, and service. They have committed to contributing to the Hydra Project through evangelism for Hydra and its capabilities and have been active spokespeople, particularly with RDF and for mixed media digital collections. They have also committed to extending their role by contributing code and documentation, leading and participating in working groups, as well as being open to new ways of contributing to the community.
