ABOUT THE RESOURCE
Islandora combines the Drupal and Fedora open software applications to create a robust digital asset management system that can be fitted to meet the short and long term collaborative requirements of digital data stewardship. Additional open source applications are added to this core stack to create 'Solution Packs'. Islandora operates under a GNU license, and was created by (and is still being actively developed and improved by) the Robertson Library at the University of Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Islandora may be used to create large, searchable collections of digital assets of any type and is domain-agnostic in terms of the type of content it can steward.
This webinar includes an introduction to Islandora for libraries. The guest speaker is Mark Leggott, University Librarian at Prince Edward Island, Canada. Mark was one of the driving forces behind the creation of Islandora and now also runs a company called Discovery Garden offering commercial services to support users of the framework.
