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
Linked Data
Multilingual Content and Interface

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

A message for our community in light of COVID-19

In light of the unprecedented times that we’re all going through, we wanted to share some information and resources for the Islandora community. The Islandora Foundation itself has always been a virtual office, with both employees working from home and all meetings taking place online, so we’ve been very fortunate in being able to continue with the business of Islandora more or less as we always have. Much of our community, however, has made this transition very recently and very suddenly. 

Islandoracon 2021 - Seeking Expressions of Interest

The Islandora Foundation is seeking Expressions of Interest to host the 2021 Islandora Conference (Islandoracon). 

This will be the fourth iteration of our community’s largest gathering. Previous Islandoracon locations include:

 

  • 2015: University of Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown, PE
  • 2017: MacMaster University, Hamilton, ON
  • 2019: Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, BC

 

Deadline for submissions: July 31, 2020

 

New Committer: Eli Zoller

The Islandora 8 committers have nominated and approved Eli Zoller to join the crew, and we are pleased to announced that he has accepted!

Eli is a recent newcomer to Islandora, but in his short tenure has managed to provide the upcoming versioning features in Islandora 8 v1.1.0. While working for Arizona State University, he has engaged the project in countless ways. Bug reporting, bug fixing, testing, documentation... you name it. He's even got a PR out there for the Mirador viewer :)
