4.6 Centering the Community in Liberal Arts Open Source: Reports on Work of the Islandora Collaboration Group and the Five College Consortium

This project briefing will focus on the community building aspect of open source digital repository work, and how this both meets the missions of our liberal arts institutions and is something we are reliant upon in order to accomplish our goals with limited resources. Representatives from the Islandora Collaboration Group (ICG) and the Five College Consortium will speak about three unique perspectives and projects: the ISLE and subsequent LASIR projects from the ICG; Compass, the collaborative Islandora repository from Mt. Holyoke, Hamsphire, and Smith Colleges; and the Fedora developer contributions from Amherst College. The challenge of compromise, the work of consensus-building, and the goals of sustainable, inclusive digital systems will also be addressed by presenters. We would like to recognize the contributions by David Keiser-Clark of Williams College and Sarah Goldstein of Mt. Holyoke College in preparing this presentation.
