Islandora workshops: Open Repositories 2014

Today launches the beginning to the 2014 Open Repositories conference in Helsinki, Finland.

Islandora has a strong presence at the conference as usual, represented by the Islandora Foundation, discoverygarden inc, and countless Islandora users.

Highlights of today were half-day beginner and advanced Islandora training sessions. We discussed general administrative modules, solr configuration, ingesting and managing content as well as custom solr configurations and the XML form builder. Attendees participated from institutions in Canada, the United States, from all over Europe, and from Asia. The day concluded with friendly conversation over dinner and drinks.
