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

Upcoming Sprint: Metadata

Our very own Metadata Interest Group is running a sprint from March 8th to the 19th, and everyone's invited to participate.  We'll be auditing the default metadata fields that we ship with and comparing them to the excellent metadata profile the MIG has worked so hard to create for us. The goal of the sprint is just to find out where the gaps are so we know the full scope of work needed to implement their recommendations.  If you can navigate the Drupal fields UI (or just want to learn!), contributing is easy and would be super helpful to us. NO PROGRAMMING REQUIRED.
