IslandoraCamp UK - Day One

I'm away from the Digital Scholarship Unit this week in semi-sunny London,  as an instructor for Islandora Camp UK. Here are some of my notes:

Note: Fresh and Maybe Flawed.

Camp started this morning in a basement room of the King’s college Strand campus. Altogether, we are 20 folks from Canada, Korea, Germany, Italy, Croatia, and areas of the UK. Our morning roundtable discussion revealed that our professions are as diverse as our countries of origin - there are developers (of course) as well as librarians, archives, administrators, private company service providers, and government staff. But we’re unified by our interests - In no particular order, the leitmotifs of IslandoraCamp UK are shaping up to be:

  • The Institutional Repository
  • Multisites
  • RDF/Linked Data
  • Long-term preservation
  • Archives and Islandora
  • Running at Head & Migration (Systems Sustainability)
  • Internationalization
