ARKs in the Open – Project Update #3, Roadmap and Resources and Value Statement

Add your voice to the new ARKs in the Open Roadmap and Resources and Value Statement. These new project artifacts describe the product and community resources required to fulfill a sustainable future for ARKS and our value proposition.

The roadmap is designed to welcome people to the ARKs in the Open project, tell them how to get involved in the project, and present a list of short-term, long-term, and aspirational priorities.

The Resources and Value Statement outlines what problems are solved by ARKs, the key metrics for the community’s success, the resources required for product and community development, community engagement, project execution, as well as our unique value proposition.

This new documentation was developed by the incubators of the ARK specification at the California Digital Library. Let us know what you think. Add your voice!
