Islandora is a digital repository framework 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 Fedora Commons repository software, together with additional open source applications (including Solr), to deliver a wide range of functionality. The workshop will give participants a chance to explore how community members are using Islandora, and how to:
- Change the look and feel of a repository website;
- Create users, roles and permissions to manage workflow;
- Ingest and manage digital assets;
- Harvest assets to aggregators such as DPLA;
- Restrict access to digital assets; and
- Configure the discovery layer and metadata display tools.
