Created in Charlottetown at the University of Prince Edward Island, Islandora is anopen-source software framework designed to help libraries and other institutions to collaboratively manage, and discover digital assets using a best-practices framework. If this year’s APLA conference is an opportunity to “share and celebratethe work we do every day,” then it seems like a good fit to have a look at the historyand success of this Atlantic Canadian project and its growth and adoption around the world.
