The Islandora 8 committers have asked Alan Stanley to join their ranks and we are pleased to announced that he has accepted.
Alan has a long history with Islandora, as a developer, instructor, mentor, and all-around great member of our community. Alan's recent contributions to Islandora 8 include support for ORCID integration, OCR text extraction, and FITS metadata — and stay tuned for some upcoming improvements to content modeling, courtesy of Alan's work at UPEI.
We are extremely grateful for all of the time and effort that Alan has put into Islandora 8, and we couldn't be more excited to have him on board!
