Islandora

Islandora is a completely free open-source software framework designed to help institutions and organizations and their audiences collaboratively manage and discover digital assets using a best practice framework.  Islandora is implemented and supported by an ever-growing international community.

Built on a base of Drupal, Fedora, and Solr, Islandora's flexibility empowers users to work with a huge variety of data types (such as image, video, and pdf) and knowledge domains (such as Chemistry and the Digital Humanities) and provides integration with additional viewers, editors, and data processing applications.

Islandora has out-of-the-box support for:
Any Digital File Type
Batch Ingest and Migrations
Faceted Searching
Flexible Metadata
Flexible Storage
IIIF
JSON-LD Serialization
Linked Data
Multilingual Content and Interface

Additionally, you can extend Islandora using any of the hundreds of modules built by the Drupal community.

Upcoming Webinar: Paged and Complex Content in Islandora 8

Islandora 8 was released last June without built-in support for paged content. Our community placed a very high priority on correcting that omission and getting books and newspapers ready for migration from collections in islandora 7. Thanks to an incredibly successful community sprint back in September, paged content is in!

Documentation Sprint Wrapup

Thanks again to everyone involved for another successful community sprint. During those two weeks, we reviewed all of our existing documentation and added quite a few new pages to support the new features we've picked up since 1.0.0 was released. You can see it all at islandora.github.io/documentation.
