In coordination with the UCLA Library and DiscoveryGarden, we are planning to move forward on work to integrate Islandora with Merritt. UCLA will be conducting the development work using a forthcoming Islandora API, with consulting, testing, and project support from DiscoveryGarden and CDL. Islandora is an open source digital asset management system currently under evaluation for implementation by the UCLA Library. We are seeking to deploy Merritt as the preservation storage layer under Islandora’s Drupal-based system, in place of Fedora, which usually fills that role. We will prepare documentation, to assist other Islandora implementers with this process, once the project is completed.
