Islandora

Islandora is a completely free open-source software framework designed to help institutions and organizations and their audiences collaboratively manage and discover digital assets using a best practice framework.  Islandora is implemented and supported by an ever-growing international community.

Built on a base of Drupal, Fedora, and Solr, Islandora's flexibility empowers users to work with a huge variety of data types (such as image, video, and pdf) and knowledge domains (such as Chemistry and the Digital Humanities) and provides integration with additional viewers, editors, and data processing applications.

Islandora has out-of-the-box support for:
Any Digital File Type
Batch Ingest and Migrations
Faceted Searching
Flexible Metadata
Flexible Storage
IIIF
JSON-LD Serialization

Additionally, you can extend Islandora using any of the hundreds of modules built by the Drupal community.

New Islandora 8 Committer: Alan Stanley

The Islandora 8 committers have asked Alan Stanley to join their ranks and we are pleased to announced that he has accepted. 

Alan has a long history with Islandora, as a developer, instructor, mentor, and all-around great member of our community. Alan's recent contributions to Islandora 8 include support for ORCID integration, OCR text extraction, and FITS metadata — and stay tuned for some upcoming improvements to content modeling, courtesy of Alan's work at UPEI.

Islandora Camp is Going Back to PEI

Our second Islandora event for 2020 will take Islandora home to where it was born: The University of Prince Edward Island, in beautiful Charlottetown PE. Come join us to learn all about Islandora, network with your community, and maybe tack on a few days to explore one of Canada's most beautiful destinations.

The camp will run from July 20 - 22, following the usual Islandora Camp format with one day of general sessions, a day of hands-on training workshops with tracks for front-end users and developers, and a day of sessions from the community. We hope to see you there!

New Member: University of Nevada, Las Vegas

The Islandora Foundation could not be more happy to welcome our newest member-supporter: The University of Nevada, Las Vegas. One of the earliest adopters of Islandora 8, and a vital supporter who helped to built the platform they are moving to, UNLV has made a huge impact on the Islandora community since they first engaged in 2018.
