Discovery Garden just recently completed a project that really shows what Islandora can do as a repository: They built a digital repository for the Baseball Hall of Fame called Pastime. As a baseball fan, I’m very excited to be able to look at these special materials online. The first item you see on the Pastime site is a Babe Ruth scrapbook. It uses the Islandora Book Solution Pack:
Our Islandora sites use the Book Solution Pack to display yearbooks, an alumni newsletter, and other formats. You can explore Minnesota State University-Mankato’s Yearbook collection here, and Southwest Minnesota State University’s Alumni newsletter The Focus here. This helps show the versatility of what you can do with just one Islandora Solution Pack, the Book Solution Pack.
This is just a small example of how versatile and flexible Islandora can be to meet your needs. As you explore the Baseball Hall of Fame digital collections, take a look at ours and you’ll start to see this.
Explore our sites:
- Minnesota State University-Mankato: Arch Digital Repository
- Southwest Minnesota State University
- St. Cloud Technical and Community College
- The College of St. Scholastica: The Quarry Digital Repository
We are also working on building Winona State Universities digital repository, but it is not yet live.
Please contact us if you have any questions about what you see, or want to learn more about what we can offer.
Congratulations to Discovery Garden for a great project! I look forward to exploring it.
