Austin, TX  This year marks the 20th anniversary of the creation of the original Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture (Fedora) by Sandy Payette and Carl Lagoze at Cornell University in 1997. To celebrate the two decades of community innovation in the ongoing open source development of the flexible, modular, repository platform, we look back on a history [1] of achievement in delivering more than 4 major versions of the software. The anniversary will be celebrated at user group meetings throughout the year.

Austin, TX  How can we help?

That’s what we at DuraSpace hope to learn from you, our valued community. We have developed a 4-question survey that should take you no more than 5 minutes to complete aimed at learning more about how DuraSpace might better serve our community.

We have heard directly and indirectly from segments of our community that different types of technical assistance would be helpful at their institutions. As we head into 2017 we are investigating how we at DuraSpace might be able to help you achieve your goals.

Austin, TX   We at DuraSpace are looking forward to a productive year in partnership with our valued community while also looking back over a decade of community development and action, open source technology advances, and organizational growth.  We took a moment to dream big. Could we better integrate mindshare? What would thoughtful expansion look like?

“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” Gloria Steinem
