The Islandora Board of Directors

The Board is primarily concerned with legal and financial aspects of the Islandora community. It is chiefly supportive of the Coordinating Committee and Islandora Committers, but directional in the sense that when the Coordinating Committee looks to the Board for direction and lays out the issues in a way that the Board can act on, the Board will provide direction. The Coordinating Committee provides core directions for the community.
