    1. 1. Quick and Dirty Islandora Richard Shrake American Philosophical Society
    2. 2. OverviewThe APS has recently begun the migration from ContentDM to Islandora• Why• Requirements• Results
    3. 3. Why Islandora?• Beefs with ContentDM – Expensive – Proprietary – Preservation concerns – Disconnect between datastreams – Clunky interface – OCLC’s development schedule
    4. 4. Why Islandora?• Based on Fedora Commons and Drupal – Fedora has the management chops – Drupal handles the design• The combination provides a free, open- source, preservation-minded digital repository
    5. 5. Why Islandora?• All web-based interface• Based on concept of content models: Your usage matures with your skills – build what you want• Out of the box support for major file types (large images, sound, pdf) and interface enhancements (OCR, jpeg2000, flash in- browser content)
    6. 6. Why Islandora?• File management is paramount – A digital object is comprised of as many datastreams as you desire (original file, presentation file, relationship metadata, preservation metadata, one or many descriptive metadata files, etc.)
    7. 7. Why Islandora?• Involved and helpful user community• Responsive developers• You can go to PEI for user conferences!
    8. 8. Islandora Requirements• Linux administration knowledge• Drupal administration knowledge• Metadata standards knowledge (MODS and DC)• A willingness to read error logs• DIY ethic
    9. 9. The APS Experience• 10,000 objects in ContentDM (audio, images, and text)• Spent about 4 months testing and learning Islandora• Migrated all audio in about a month (4,700 recordings – over 1 TB!)• Migrated about a 1/3 of images (deliberate process – fixing errors)
    10. 10. The APS Experience• Lots of trial and error in building forms to upload new content• Currently adding new audio content• Currently working on security processes for sensitive materials
