Community Members are people and organizations working together on the Islandora ecosystem. Any community member may form an Interest Group on a particular topic providing a forum for information exchange, mentorship and development within an area of interest.

Interest Groups are for things like: reporting findings, submitting code, creating documentation, and making recommendations to the Islandora Coordinating Committee (ICC). Interest Groups can access support from the Islandora Committers group, and when so recognized, have first right of refusal on community and code projects that intersect with the stated area of interest.
