Description: Samvera is not one single software product; rather, it is a suite of components built and supported by the Samvera Community. In addition, Samvera draws on many more open source components, from the Blacklight discovery application, supported by an overlapping community, to Solr, maintained by the Apache Foundation and used widely and internationally across commerce, education and beyond. The aim of Samvera, as a community and software stack, is to work together to deliver common core repository functionality, in a way that can be flexibly applied to a range of use cases.
Hosting: Ubiquity Press and HykuUP provide fully managed hosting of customized implementations of Samvera-powered software.
