The Hydra Archivists Interest Group is composed of archivists working at institutions affiliated with or exploring Project Hydra. Archivists at these institutions meet monthly via conference call to discuss ways in which they can advance archival technology needs through better communication and understanding of software development activities. Since last year's SAA Annual Conference, our group's dialogue has focused on issues of systems integration, with particular interest in exploring the intersections of Hydra, ArchivesSpace, and Archivematica.
The meeting of Hydra Archivists at this year's Joint Annual Meeting is open to anyone interested in issues related to archival technology. We will give a brief overview of the interests and priorities of those who have been active in this community, attempt to define what the Hydra Archivists group is and could be, both within and without the Hydra community, and have a conversation about archival technology challenges and needs (including repository challenges and needs).
