Two Islandora workshops are coming up in June 2016.
On the afternoon of Monday, June 13 from 1:30 - 6 pm myself and Melissa
Anez will be delivering a half-day Islandora for Managers workshop at the
International Conference on Open Repositories at Trinity College in Dublin,
Ireland. All are welcome. There's no charge to participate. We’ll be
notifying folks when registration is open for the session.
On the afternoon of Friday, June 24 from 1 - 4pm myself and Stephen Perkins
will be delivering another half-day Islandora for Managers: Open Source
Digital Repository Training session at the Library and Information
Technology Association (LITA) American Library Association (ALA) conference
in Orlando, Florida. There is a registration fee for this workshop. One can
purchase a ticket during the ALA conference registration process
The workshops will provide participants with information about the
Islandora software framework, and allow them to test drive a full Islandora
installation using local virtual machines or the online Islandora sandbox.
After the system overview, the instructors will lead participants through
the basic functions of an Islandora installation, including new features
introduced over the past year as well as a ‘how to’ guide for basic
features such as ingesting content, managing metadata, configuring search
and discovery and much, much more.
If you have questions regarding the upcoming training sessions, please
don’t hesitate to contact me. Cheers!
