1st Islandora Camp Europe a Tuscan Success

I've had a week or so to recover from our first European Islandora Camp and I can say that is was a great success. Camp was located in the historic Castle in the town of Arcidosso in Tuscany Italy and it would not have been possible without our hosts: Alex Siedlecki, the town of Arcidosso and the Shang Shung Institute.

Islandora Camp PEI: July 7

Details are still in the works, but we have picked the date for Islandora Camp in PEI this year: Sunday, July 7. Right before Open Repositories 2013. Because of our heavy participation in OR2013, Islandora Camp will be abbreviated to a day and a half of sessions and events. Hope to see you there!
