Islandora is an open-source software framework designed to help institutions and organizations and their audiences collaboratively manage, and discover digital assets using a best-practices framework. It uses Drupal as a front-end and deploys other open-source technologies, such as Fedora and Solr, to deliver a complete digital assets management solution. Originally developed by the University of Prince Edward Island's Robertson Library, Islandora is now implemented and supported by an ever-growing international community.
Islandora and all of its components are completely open-source and free to use. Learn more about Islandora 8.
