In 2017, the Georgia State University Library decided to replace its local instance of CONTENTdm with Samvera/Hyrax. The decision required changes to the development unit's staffing, a commitment to developing the system to meet the library's digital collections needs, and a commitment to supporting the system in the long term. The development project started in mid-2018 and is ongoing. The five-person development team has followed the Scrum project management framework to organize its work into two-week sprints. In this briefing, the product owner and Scrum Master will review the pros and cons of using the Scrum framework in libraries, summarize the implications of their work for the ongoing support of the system, and discuss the impact of moving from a commercial product to an open-source product with an active community that offers opportunities for continuing collaboration.
