Marin,
We at the Art Institute of Chicago have built LAKE, a DAMS and institutional repository based on existing open source software such as Fedora and Samvera (formerly Hydra). Our implementation is open source too, however not quite ready for straight-forward adoption yet [1].


Hyku [2] is a "turnkey" version of what we did, independently developed by Stanford, DPLA and Duraspace based on the same technology. There is a live demo available with a relatively simple and general-purpose workflow [3].

At the end of the day it all depends on how you plan to use your DAMS, and the choices above (or even the choice of an open source solution) may or may not be a good fit.


Best,
Stefano

Good morning!

We're developing a list of open source dams to explore. Does anyone have any 
recommendations/experiences to share about open source dams that have been adopted by 
the museum community, beyond ResourceSpace<https://www.resourcespace.com/>?

With appreciation,
Marin
