Enhancing Digital Asset Management

Islandora is an open source digital asset management system that preserves, manages, and showcases your institution’s unique material.

When it comes to preserving your library’s assets, you can’t afford to take risks. What happens when paper becomes unreadable, or audio and video content becomes inaccessible as devices become obsolete? There is a growing need to preserve and have information easily accessible. PALS makes that happen by helping implement Islandora.

Getting Started

Start small. When implementing a digital asset management program, look for a high-value, high-impact collection such as an alumni newsletter, a set of yearbooks, or photographs. Developing and showcasing this collection can be an optimal way to gain key support that can move you forward with a digital repository initiative. Southwest Minnesota State University did this by first digitizing their alumni newsletter, which resulted in a successful partnership with the Southwest Minnesota State University Foundation.

Multiple Types

The Islandora digital asset management solution supports multiple formats including photographs, audio files, streaming video, newspapers, yearbooks, publications, oral histories, course catalogs, open educational resources and more. It’s also possible to load and store Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, Excel databases, .zip files, Access files and others.
