Fedora

 

Fedora is a robust, modular repository system for the management and dissemination of digital content. It is especially suited for digital libraries and archives, both for access and preservation. It is also used to provide specialized access to very large and complex digital collections of historic and cultural materials as well as scientific data.

Fedora's flexibility enables it to integrate gracefully with many types of enterprise and web-based systems, offering scalability (e.g., millions of objects) and durability (e.g., all of the information is maintained in files with no software dependency, from which the complete repository can be rebuilt at any time). It also provides the ability to express rich sets of relationships among digital resources and to query the repository using the semantic web's SPARQL query language.

Fedora has a worldwide installed user base that includes academic and cultural heritage organizations, universities, research institutions, university libraries, national libraries, and government agencies.

With the production release of Fedora 4 on December 4, 2014 the Fedora repository community and DuraSpace celebrated both a significant release and the effectiveness of an international and complex community source project in delivering a modern repository platform. Fedora 4 features include vast improvements in scalability, linked data capabilities, research data support, modularity, ease of use and more.
 
Fedora 4 features were collaboratively chosen and developed by a virtual team of developers and stakeholders from around the globe. With DuraSpace support this committed team has ensured that Fedora Repository software will meet the emerging needs of the academic research community now and for the next decade.
