The University of Toronto Scarborough Library's Digital Scholarship Unit is hosting a Lunch and Learn event on February 23rd from 1:00-3:00pm online and from 12:00-3:00pm in-person at the University of Toronto Scarborough Library. Anyone who is interested in attending the event is welcome to sign up here: https://goo.gl/forms/4vfqyCFnaDrGEGWr2.
The event is going to introduce participants and provide the latest updates on the next generation of Islandora called Islandora CLAW. Islandora CLAW uses the latest repository technologies and is a total re-architecting of the interaction between the various pieces, acting as middleware for not only Drupal 8.x and Fedora 4, but also Solr, Blazegraph, and any microservices added to the stack.
The DSU will also be giving a presentation about the Dragomans Renaissance Research Project, an experimental digital humanities project that curates over a decade of research for Professor Natalie Rothman. The platform is built the principles of a Linked Data Platform (https://www.w3.org/TR/ldp/) and models the data using the Resource Description Framework (https://www.w3.org/standards/techs/rdf#w3c_all). This framework allows for robust querying and search and allows for the expression of complex relationships between different data points.
We are hoping that this event will spark discussion about the future of digital repositories and to ask questions and provide their thoughts about Islandora CLAW. We also hope that participants will learn more about the work done in the DSU within this new infrastructure. We also hope through our discussion to find out how others are engaging in the Islandora community, how they want to participate in the future, what repository technologies they currently support or want to support.
