Announcing Series 9 in the DuraSpace Hot Topics Webinar Series: Early Advantage: Introducing New Fedora 4.0 Repositories
Curated by David Wilcox, Fedora Product Manager, DuraSpace
Fedora 4.0 Beta was released in June of 2014 with a full production release planned for later this year. Several institutions have already adopted Fedora 4.0 Beta and started designing and implementing pilot projects that take advantage of new features. This webinar series highlights four of these projects and explains why being an early adopter of Fedora 4.0 benefits institutions. Join curator and Fedora Product Manager David Wilcox, along with representatives from the Art Institute of Chicago, the University of California San Diego, Pennsylvania State University, and Stanford University, as they take you on a tour of innovative new Fedora 4.0 repositories.
