We need to run a pilot to ensure that the new single-instance Hyrax is working as expected. We think the following three campuses are good participants for a pilot:
Sacramento has a typical, medium-sized repository in ScholarWorks, and has a number of new collections they’d like to upload. We think they will be a good representative of current CSU DSpace users. Dominguez Hills and Fullerton do not currently use DSpace, and so can start using the new system without consideration for historical data or current workflows. This will allow them to get up and running faster than most campuses. Having three campuses will let us test the multi-campus configuration of the new system.
Onboarding the pilot campuses, including
Setting up workflows
Setting up local controlled vocabularies
Running through a broad set of tests
Reporting any bugs or performance issues
Nice to have:
Running through a comprehensive set of tests.
Campuses in the pilot should be willing to help train campuses in the subsequent phases.
Not in scope:
The pilot should not include new feature requests or UI changes. Rather, such requests should be taken up more formally within the Implementation Team.
