Fedora is a flexible, extensible repository platform for the preservation, management, and dissemination of digital content. Fedora 4, the newly released, revitalized version of Fedora, introduces a host of new features and functionality that both new and existing Fedora users will be interested in learning about and experiencing first-hand. This workshop will provide an introduction to and overview of Fedora 4, with a focus on the latest features. Fedora 4 is a Linked Data Platform server, so we will also discuss the benefits and opportunities of linked data. Finally, attendees will participate in a hands-on session that will give them a chance to install, configure, and explore Fedora 4 by following step-by-step instructions. Attendees should bring laptops; wireless Internet access will be available.
