The annual Open Repositories conference is kind of a big deal for our community, and we are very pleased with the representation that Islandora will have in Dublin at this year's event, taking place from June 13 - 17. If you're going to be there and want to hear more about Islandora, you should check out the following sessions:
An introductory workshop to provide information about Islandora, and allow users to test drive a full Islandora installation using local virtual machines or the online Islandora sandbox.
Join representatives from the DSpace, Eprints, Fedora, Hydra, Islandora, and Invenio communities as we (briefly) explain what each of our repositories actually does. We'll also talk about our communities, the direction of technical development, strategic priorities and activities, and major trends in the repository space at large.
RDF/LDP Resource/Graph creation and validation using dynamic OWL 2 reasoning in Fedora Commons 4 repositories or “how to kill your incode data modeling”
This paper introduces practical Ontology reasoning as a fundamental need in curation workflows for LDP/RDF Semantic Web aware repositories and showcases a workinprogress practical implementation by integrating preservation resources/OWL 2 graph traversal with applied business rules for validation in a distributed ingest and retrieval scenario for Fedora 4, in specific under IslandoraCLAW.
FABB Repository (Fame e ABBondanza – Famine and Feast) is a Repository built with Islandora, Fedora Repository, Solr, Ubuntu, Kvm and Drupal. The project focuses on collecting, organizing and valorizing different objects from Piedmont concerning food and the lack of food, in order to investigate the collective identity of the territory within the frame of Digital Humanities.
An overview of recent developments and events in the community of Islandora users and developers.
This session will provide an update about what the Islandora CLAW project has achieved, the current state of the software, and the ways in which it is being developed.
The management of research data has become a priority and challenge for academic institutions. With UPEI Library’s strategic goal of engaging researchers throughout the life cycle, they developed an integrated suite of open source-based services for researchers to help manage their research data throughout the lifecycle including a planning tool; a local dropbox-like service for “working” data; a platform for archiving, publishing, discovery, and citation of research data; and integration with DataCite.
The ingest, access, and storage of high volumes of data can create performance challenges for Islandora. These challenges require hardware and application tuning, integration of new components, and the development new tools to accommodate growing repositories. This presentation will explore customer case studies that demonstrate interim solutions and the extensive, ongoing research and development to find long-term solutions.
