Our Lobstometre serves as a visual indicator of Islandora's membership funding against the goal of supporting two employees (a Project & Community Manager and a Technical Lead). In July, 2016, the Islandora Foundation took the opportunity to use some funding from a grant to top up our numbers and hire a Technical Lead, which is indicated in blue.
That money will see us through the next year, but in the long term, we need to raise the red in the lobster. We are still actively seeking support from our community to grow our membership. We have three tiers of institutional membership (outlined here) and another for individuals. Please contact us if you want to learn more.
