Islandora is an open-source software framework designed to help institutions and organizations and their audiences collaboratively manage, and discover digital assets using a best-practices framework. Islandora was originally developed by the
University of Prince Edward Island's Robertson Library, but is now implemented and contributed to by an ever-growing international community.
Fedora is the robust, modular, open source repository platform for the management and dissemination of digital content. Fedora is used in a wide variety of institutions including libraries, museums, archives, and government organizations.
Islandora and Fedora Camp, hosted by Arizona State University Libraries, offers everyone a chance to dive in and learn all about the latest versions of Islandora and Fedora.
Training will begin with the basics and build toward more advanced concepts–no prior Islandora or Fedora experience is required. Participants can expect to come away with a deep dive Islandora and Fedora learning experience coupled with multiple
opportunities for applying hands-on techniques working with experienced trainers from both communities.
Recent Islandora Camps include the Switzerland camp at Lib4RI, the California camp at San Diego State University, and the Halifax camp at Mount Saint Vincent University. Recent Fedora Camps include the Atlanta camp at Emory University, the NASA
camp at Goddard Space Flight Center, and the Texas camp at UT Austin.
