Announcing the First Annual Islandora Conference

1 week 4 days

It's like an Islandora Camp, only more.

The Islandora community has been working since 2006, via email, listservs, irc, and nearly a dozen Islandora Camps. We have grown, matured, tackled major changes in the structure of the project, and now we are ready to come together for a full conference to talk about where we've been and where we're going.

August 3 - 7, 2015, we invite Islandorians from the world over to join us in the birthplace of Islandora (Charlottetown, PEI) for a week of great food, (hopefully) beautiful weather, and all the Islandora you can handle. This full week event will contain sessions from the Islandora Foundation, Interest groups, community presentations, two full days of hands-on Islandora training, and will end with an islandora Hackfest where we invite you to make your mark in the Islandora code and work together with your fellow Islandorians to complete a project selected by the community.

Full details will be available as they develop on our Conference Website, including registration, calls for proposals, scheduling, and recommendations for accommodations and travel. We look forward to seeing you in PEI next year!

The idea of storing research data in Islandora has come up fair bit lately at camps and on the listserv, so here is a little overview of the current state of tools and projects that touch on the topic:

Tools

  • Combining the Compound Solution Pack with the Binary Solution Pack can get your data into Islandora and make it browsable. The Binary SP, which is still in development, can accommodate any kind of data with a barebones ingestion that adds only the objects necessary for Fedora. The Compound SP can be used to 'attach' these files to a parent object more suitable to display and browsing, such as a PDF or image.
  • Islandora Scholar contains tools for disseminating information about citations. When used in conjunction with the Entities Solution Pack (recently offered to the Islandora Foundation and likely to be in the 7.x-1.5 release next year), it can manage authority records for scholars and projects....
