Hyrax uses the full power of Samvera and extends it to provide a user interface around common repository features and social features. Hyrax offers self-deposit, proxy deposit, and mediated deposit workflows. Hyrax delivers its rich and growing set of features via a modern, responsive user interface.

Hyrax was created through the consolidation of the Sufia and CurationConcerns gems. (Sufia was originally developed at Penn State University as a shareable generalization of their Samvera-based research repository application, ScholarSphere.)

Hyrax, and Sufia and CurationConcerns before it, has been maintained by a growing number of Samvera community developers (with over 110 contributors as of April of 2018.

Hyrax is exemplary of Samvera development that has had wide implementation and code contributions to become a truly community-driven, -supported, and -maintained solution bundle.
