2010 Conference

The first LDCX was held at the Meyer Library, Stanford University from March 23-25, 2010.

At the dawn of the American Revolution, Ben Franklin quipped that "we must hang together, or surely we will hang apart." At Stanford, we have consciously chosen to adopt community-based solutions rather than rolling our own whenever possible, and we believe our adoption of Fedora, solr, Blacklight and Hydra have put us ahead of where we would otherwise be. That said, we recognize the need for more: more shared components, more solutions from other sources, more contributors and contributions to the pieces we have already adopted.

The objective of the gathering is to bring together institutions and developers with shared needs, and assemble around a shared set of solutions and technical components. In Stanford's case, these components include Fedora, ActiveFedora, Solr, Blacklight and the Hydra project. With the technology contributions from peer institutions, these offer the critical building blocks for a complete suite of digital library and repository solutions--from digitization workflow to digital asset management, from preservation to discovery and delivery.
