Born-Digital offers a full suite of sustainable and secure Islandora solutions. We create and manage custom tools which allow archivists, librarians and digital curators to focus on what they do best: preserving, publicizing, and providing public access to their collections.
For existing Islandora installs we start with a comprehensive audit, make recommendations for infrastructure and application stability and security, then set up a recurring maintenance and support retainer. We also offer “continuous enhancement” retainers, as well as engage for single custom development projects.
For clients interested in an initial install or migration, again we start with an audit of existing systems and digital collections, as well as on-staff capabilities. We present a plan which dovetails with our client’s team, augmenting their expertise and availability. Sometimes we shoulder the full project effort, but we have found that closer to an 80/20 split not only keeps project costs down, but also ensures that our clients are comfortable with their new systems by the time the site launches.

Agile Humanities Agency draws on a decade of experience with the Islandora platform and its international community. We typically work with clients across the arts, humanities, and social sciences and partner with publishers, galleries, libraries, archives, and museums.
We specialize in open-source development and custom design for an array of content management systems, data repositories, and platforms. As a member of the Islandora Foundation, we help to build and maintain the community’s codebase. We also provide ongoing hosting and support services.
Our agency practices an iterative, design-driven philosophy, an agile practice that allows us to adapt quickly to user and stakeholder feedback. Our expertise in accessible usability/UX design has proven critical to a client base with complex compliance requirements and specific community standards.
We form geographically distributed "agile networks" among clients and rapidly assembled teams of programmers, designers, information and systems architects, and project managers. No agile network is exactly alike; each one is a custom fit. Our networks are global, so we're accustomed to working across continents, oceans, and time zones. We cultivate a culture of remote collaboration.
