Introducing the NEW Islandora Default Thumbnail Module!

We are pleased to announce the availability of the Islandora Default Thumbnail module. It creates an easy way to configure thumbnail options for any content model and avoids manual thumbnail replacement on individual objects in the repository.

The module was developed here at discoverygarden on behalf of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum as part of the user interface design portion of their ongoing digital repository project.

The module works by impacting the display of thumbnails in the Drupal layer of Islandora when viewing objects in grid view, list view and Solr search results view. It does not change or replace the thumbnail datastream stored in the Fedora Commons layer of Islandora. It leverages the Plupload module so users can supply any thumbnail image they choose.

This module development is part of discoverygarden's commitment to serving its customers and enhancing the Islandora open source digital repository software stack. Our software developers continue to commit new code and exciting features on a regular basis!

To learn more about this module, please visit the GitHub repository page or Contact Us!
