Submitted by on Mon, 2010-05-03 11:43
Ithaca, NY If the prospect of red sand beaches, golf and lobster boils sound appealing as a backdrop for a deep dive into learning more about Fedora-based open source repository solutions, two back-to-back offerings from the University of Prince Edward Island in Charlottetown, PE, Canada will be of interest. Mark Leggott, University Librarian and Islandora Lead has announced two upcoming events:
1. The Islandora Team is in the early stages of planning for the 1st Annual Islandora Camp, July 22-23, Charlottetown, PEI:
If you would like to get involved and talk about what you are doing, or planning to do, with Islandora, please send Mark Leggott (email@example.com) a note by May 28 with your idea.
Since this is an event focused on the Islandora user community, we are keeping the costs to a bare minimum and also offering a small travel subsidy and free registration for speakers.
Registration for the event will be available by mid-May.
2. The annual 2010 Red Island Repository Institute (RIRI), July 26-30, Charlottetown PEI, is now open for registration:
More details will follow, but Sandy Payette, Carl Lagoze, Eddie Shin, Bess Sadler and Mark Leggott will be on-hand as the instructors. Sessions will provide the regular information-filled mix of RIRI sessions, with lots of break-out time for hands-on and deep-dive time with developers from the Islandora, ActiveFedora and Hydra projects.
RIRI targets repository managers and developers, with the goal of helping to build a richer Fedora ecosystem through quality time with your colleagues. RIRI has a cap of 20 people, so if you are interested please register soon, as it does fill up early.
