PALS began working with the Minnesota State on Opendora in January 2018. Our goal was to provide a central repository for open educational resources (OER) to reduce the cost of textbooks and other course materials for students. Opendora is a derivative of Islandora, which is an open source digital asset management system that supports any file format and is highly customizable to meet the needs of both small and large institutions.
