Pre-Conference Islandora

Islandora Repository System Seminar

The Islandora project (Islandora.ca) is growing steadily, with new functionality added with each release (e.g. Solr) integration, Content Model Editor, flexible metadata editor). The project has received stable funding to support the growth of this open source project beyond the traditional library borders, especially when it comes to the stewardship of research data. Islandora provides integration between Fedora and Drupal, with custom solution packs to address the needs of multiple data types. This session will review the project's development and current features, as well as provide guidance for basic installation and configuration.
