The Islandora Foundation is pleased to announce that one of our Collaborator member institutions is becoming a Partner: the Islandora Collaboration Group.
Most members of this consortium are liberal arts colleges in the eastern United States, but the organization has grown beyond its initial region and welcomes new members. They have spearheaded the development of Islandora Enterprise (ISLE), a tool designed to significantly ease the process of installing and maintaining Islandora, and have expanded their development efforts to include the LASIR project, which will extend and improve Islandora's services as an institutional repository.
In addition to many contributions by its members to Islandora releases, camps, and community support on the listserv, the ICG introduced the concept of the 'hack/doc' to the Islandora conference, modelled on their own successful bi-annual internal hack/docs.
Current members of the ICG include:
- Barnard College
- Colgate University
- Five College Compass: Digital Collections
- Hampshire College
- Mount Holyoke College
- Smith College
- Grinnell College
- Hamilton College
- Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
- Vassar College
- Wesleyan University
- Williams College
As a Partner in the Islandora Foundation, the ICG has nominated David Keiser-Clark to our Board of Directors. Based at Williams College, David serves on the steering committees for both ISLE and LASIR, and has been a member of the Islandora Coordinating Committee since 2017.
