This session will give attendees an opportunity to talk with other users and potential users of Fedora-based digital repositories like Islandora & Hydra. Implementers of Islandora repositories at UT-Austin will be in attendance to share experiences, provide demos on demand, and discuss current developments, challenges, and collaborative opportunities.

Potential topics include:

  • Islandora vs. Hydra pros/cons
  • In-house vs. outsourced development
  • Content modeling
  • Customization roundup
  • Building capacity (IT infrastructure, skill-building)
