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.
As part of the Archival Resource Keys (ARKs) in the Open project, we want to articulate and refine the long-term vision for ARK identifiers, starting with the ARK specification, and to collaborate with users on how to achieve it. Incubators of ARKs at the California Digital Library started the process this week by releasing a new Project Vision:

Austin, TX How can we help?
That’s what we at DuraSpace hope to learn from you, our valued community. We have developed a 4-question survey that should take you no more than 5 minutes to complete aimed at learning more about how DuraSpace might better serve our community.
We have heard directly and indirectly from segments of our community that different types of technical assistance would be helpful at their institutions. As we head into 2017 we are investigating how we at DuraSpace might be able to help you achieve your goals.
Austin, TX We at DuraSpace are looking forward to a productive year in partnership with our valued community while also looking back over a decade of community development and action, open source technology advances, and organizational growth. We took a moment to dream big. Could we better integrate mindshare? What would thoughtful expansion look like?
