Abstract

We introduce VTechData, a Sufia/Fedora based institutional repository specifically implemented to meet the needs of research data management at Virginia Tech. Despite the rapid maturity of Hydra and Fedora code bases, the gaps between the released packages and a launched production-level service are still many and far from trivial. In this practitioner paper we describe the strategy and efforts through which these gaps were filled and lessons learned in the process of creating our first Hydra/Sufia-based repository.
