Fedora Workshop, Staatsarchiv Bern, Switzerland, Aug 22

On August 22,2019 the State Archives Basel-Stadt and St. Gallen will host a Fedora Workshop with high-caliber speakers from Lyrasis/DuraSpace/Fedora: Product Manager David Wilcox and Technical Lead Andrew Wood will discuss Fedora 4 (currently 5.0.2) which replaces the Fedora 3.8 version currently running on many archives. Unlike Fedora 3.8 (XML and Relational Database), Fedora 4 builds on RDF and Triplestore.

This is a far-reaching change, presenting new opportunities that need to be examined in depth and discussed by the community to make sustainable use of them possible. Since many members of KOST use Fedora open source repository software, but the resources for building knowledge are scarce, a coordinated approach is appropriate.

The workshop will  be held in English .
