Islandora - Getting Started
Monday, July 9, 2012 at 9:30 AM (PDT)
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Islandora is a digital asset management system that provides out-of-the-box repository solutions (Solution Packs) for a wide range of digital collections and research domains. Islandora combines the Drupal CMS and the Fedora repository software, together with additional open source applications (including Solr), to deliver a wide range of functionality. The proposed workshop will provide users with information about the Islandora software framework, and allow users to test drive a full Islandora installation using the online Islandora sandbox.
After the system overview (including a review of the 2012/13 Roadmap for Solution Packs and new features) the instructors will lead participants through the basic functions of an Islandora installation, including new features introduced over the past year. The instructors will make themselves available for the 2nd half of the session and throughout the conference for additional advice/information on running Islandora.
This session is intended for all audiences and levels. No prior knowledge of Islandora or repositories is required. If users wish, they can come with digital objects they would like to add (PDF or image collections preferred) and describe in a repository, although sample collections will be provided.
The session will end with a brief description of how the community can participate in the development of the Islandora ecosystem, including code contributions, content models, documentation and more.
