  • Digital Scholarship Unit in the Library that provides consultation and hosting services for Digital Scholarship Projects on campus in a variety of areas.
    Islandora is an open source project supported by a non-profit organization; I’m on the Roadmap committee
    The issues Islandora is designed to address are diverse, and they span a variety of different domains.
    Typically a three day workshop on an introduction to Islandora.
  • We’re logged into Drupal
  • Open Sea Dragon Viewer
  • Architecture Slide: Integration with various open-source viewers in the community. More than Viewers (from Poster) Multiple applications. Largest one is Fedora Commons.
  • Let’s look a little deeper at one of our objects.
  • Click Manage on our book and Look at Datastreams.
    Biggest integration is with FedoraCommons.
  • Back to the datastreams and look at XML datastreams

  • - What is XML? why store things in XML?
    - metadata encoded in XML (MODS format - one of many metadata standards that make your data interoperable, and ensure its legibility to other systems)
  • Each one has standards.
    Creation of much of this metadata is automated through Islandora’s interaction with third party software.
  • RDF represents a different conceptual modeling approach that can be particularly useful to researchers - facilitate the creation of network graphs and facilitate exploratory data analysis through visualizations.
    By default, this is what links collections together and allows the system to create compound objects.
    Non-hierarchical - an item can belong, for example, to more than one collection.
    A video used in oral history and connected to related materials, which are themselves part of additional collections or resources. Different methods of discovery and exploration.

  • may have trouble working with the sandbox because everybody is on it. If after this workshop you are tempted to work further with Islandora, you might consider the Islandora Virtual Machine.
  • Return to discussion of formats.
  • This is where the actual content of the book resides, in its individual pages. There is a jp2 file, a PDF, a JPEG, and OCR/ HOCR datastreams. These were created automatically (which is why we have two jp2 streams). Typically the original object would be a .tiff file.

    An Archival Information Package

    Additional datastreams could be added to, for example, contain TEI text or a security policy.

  • go to google images and grab an image of type .jpeg .png or .gif
  • Walk through ingest steps
  • Show resulting datastreams
  • This is the MODS form.
  • Search for “Prince”
  • Powered by Solr
  • Advanced Search Block and lots of configuration options to make search behave the way you want it to
  • Examples of searches “in the wild”
  • From islandora.ca you can access documentation, resources, learn about training events. You can also learn about the user and developer google groups for Islandora, which are quite active.

    This isn’t a desktop application. It’s a server application.

  • Roots & Routes - Introduction to Islandora

    1. 1. Roots & Routes - 2014 Kirsta Stapelfeldt Coordinator, USTC Library’s Digital Scholarship Unit Introduction to
    2. 2. Workshop Outline ● Logging into the Islandora Sandbox ● Islandora’s Architecture and Goals ● Adding content to Islandora ● Resources for working with Islandora
    3. 3. http://sandbox.islandora.ca/ Navigate here for access to a live installation of basic Islandora.
    4. 4. http://sandbox.islandora.ca/ Login here
    5. 5. http://sandbox.islandora.ca/ You’re logged in as an administrator
    6. 6. http://sandbox.islandora.ca/ Click “Islandora Repository”
    7. 7. http://sandbox.islandora.ca/ Content Types supported by Islandora
    8. 8. Islandora is a suite of Drupal Modules
    9. 9. Drupal is... ● open Content Management Framework software maintained and developed by 630,000+ users and developers. ● endlessly customizable via Modules - functional plugins that either come with drupal or are developed by the community.
    10. 10. Drupal is... ● the "website" side of Islandora. Non-repo pages, menus, site theme, users - These are all managed by Drupal.
    11. 11. http://82nd-and-fifth.metmuseum.org/sealed/
    12. 12. http://www.whitehouse.gov/
    13. 13. http://www.louvre.fr/
    14. 14. Islandora uses Drupal, but provides additional features
    15. 15. http://sandbox.islandora.ca/ Click on the Book Collection
    16. 16. A thumbnail image represents the book cover. Click it.
    17. 17. the Internet Archives book reader
    18. 18. Open Seadragon Image Viewer
    19. 19. Drupal is only part of the architecture
    20. 20. Select the manage tab
    21. 21. the book “object,” which is comprised of “datastreams” - this package of content is FedoraCommons
    22. 22. FedoraCommons is... ● a general-purpose, open-source digital object repository system. ● originally developed by researchers at Cornell University as an architecture for storing, managing, and accessing digital content in the form of digital objects.
    23. 23. FedoraCommons is... ● a unique content and relationship modeling framework that preserves the integrity of collections and can be modified to manage any digital asset. ● the storage layer of Islandora. Objects ingested into and managed with Islandora are stored in a Fedora repository - not in Drupal. ● Why is FedoraCommons important?
    24. 24. Select the “MODS” hyperlink
    25. 25. Other Types of Metadata ● Provenance: who owns this? Where did it come from? Who has touched it? ● Technical: What is needed to render, interact with and use the digital object? ● Rights management: What intellectual property rights must be observed?
    26. 26. RDF or “Relationship” metadata allows for the creation of graph-like data structures
    27. 27. Short break?
    28. 28. http://islandora.ca/downloads
    29. 29. From a book, select “pages”
    30. 30. click on an image thumbnail to access a single “page”

    33. 33. Multiple datastreams make up each page
    34. 34. Security Access control for people - multiple roles, with permissions written to the datastream level. Versioning for datastreams (so that any error can be removed)
    35. 35. Can be extended Because it is open source, it can be modified by a developer for additional functions & themed to suit a specific community. Metadata that contains dates or geographic coordinates can be indexed and rendered in maps and timelines
    36. 36. Add something to Islandora Add a simple image to Islandora
    37. 37. go to google images and grab an image of .jpeg, .png, or .gif type
