Dispatches from the user list: Limit Solr search to collection descendants

4 years 7 months

The Islandora dev and user listservs are an active source of news and support for Islandora. Whatever your issue, there is a good chance that someone out there has either encountered it or has an idea of how to fix it - and that they will be happy to share those solutions.

Back in May, a member of the Islandora community brought an interesting problem to the users list on Google Groups. She had a number of book collections and wanted the ability to limit Solr searching to a single collection at a time.

Digital Humanities Summer Institute

4 years 7 months

On Thursday, June 6th, Islandora developer Alan Stanley is helping to present a course at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute held from June 6-10 at the University of Victoria in BC.

Digital Editions

This course is designed for individuals and groups who are interested in creating scholarly digital editions. Topics covered will include an overview of planning and project management, workflow and labour issues, and tools available for edition production. We will be working with the Modernist Commons (http://modernistcommons.ca), a collaborative digital editing environment and repository designed by the Editing Modernism in Canada (EMiC) project in collaboration with Islandora and its software-services company DiscoveryGarden. We will work on both text- and image-based editions, following a modularized edition-production workflow--from ingesting images, processing texts with optical-character-recognition software, uploading born-digital content, performing markup on transcriptions and images, collating variant texts, and displaying text and apparatus in different viewers. By the end of the course, participants will have worked through the practical implementation of a modular, small-scale edition prototype. Basic knowledge of TEI and some familiarity with RDF (specifically the standards of the Open Annotation Collaboration) is strongly recommended but not required. The seminar is open to everyone, although it is specifically tailored to participants of the EMiC project. Participants need not be modernists or Canadianists to take advantage of using open-source software and learning best practices for scholarly editing in digital media.
