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 make information easily accessible, and PALS makes that happen by helping you implement Islandora.

Getting Started

Start small. When first getting started with digital asset management, look for a high-value, high-impact collection such as an alumni newsletter or a set of yearbooks.

Solution Packs

Solution packs are groups of Drupal modules that enable the support of many different formats, from audio to video and PDF documents. Islandora uses three core software components: Fedora, Drupal and Solr. Fedora acts as the heart of the system, providing key digital asset management functions. Drupal allows for a customizable user interface, and Solr streamlines searching, indexing, and the retrieval of information.
