The Islandora Foundation is pleased to announce that ISLE for Islandora 8 has gone alpha and is now available!
Our very own Metadata Interest Group is running a sprint from March 8th to the 19th, and everyone's invited to participate. We'll be auditing the default metadata fields that we ship with and comparing them to the excellent metadata profile the MIG has worked so hard to create for us. The goal of the sprint is just to find out where the gaps are so we know the full scope of work needed to implement their recommendations. If you can navigate the Drupal fields UI (or just want to learn!), contributing is easy and would be super helpful to us. NO PROGRAMMING REQUIRED.
We will be holding another open drop-in session on Tuesday, February 23 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM Eastern. Full details, and the Zoom link to join, are in this Google doc. The meeting is free form, with experienced Islandora 8 users on hand to answer questions or give demos on request. Please drop in at any time during the four-hour window.
Registration is not required. If you would like a calendar invite as a reminder, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
