CERN Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication

The next CERN Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication (OAI7) will take place between June 22, 2011 and June 24, 2011 at the University of Geneva.

The workshop will follow the successful format of previous workshops mixing practical tutorials, presentations from cutting-edge projects and research, discussion groups, posters, and an intense social programme to maximise interaction and communication. It will be possible to register for a part or all of the programme.

The workshop is aimed at those involved in the development of Open Access (OA) repositories and who can influence the direction of developments either within their institution, their country or at an international level - that includes technical developers of OA bibliographic databases and connected services, research information policy developers at university or library level, funding bodies concerned with access to the results of their research, OA publishers,and influential researchers keen to lead OA developments in their own field.

Session: Using Islandora

June 21st | 2:00pm - 6:00pm

The Islandora project is growing steadily, with new functionality added with each release (e.g. Solr) integration, Content Model Editor, flexible metadata editor). The project has received stable funding to support the growth of this open source project beyond the traditional library borders, especially when it comes to the stewardship of research data. Islandora provides integration between Fedora and Drupal, with custom solution packs to address the needs of multiple data types. This session will review the project's development and current features, as well as provide guidance for basic installation and configuration.
