This session will introduce the key concepts underpinning the Islandora
Digital Asset Management system. Participants will learn the basics of
running this rich repository system and how to utilize common “solution
packs” to create and theme collections in Islandora. Participants will
learn how to begin modeling and curating custom data collections and how to
migrate from other repository systems, including ContentDM, DSpace and
more. Textbooks and system access will be provided; participants should
bring computers.
