Archives Central: A next-generation records repository

Nov 23, 2020

Islandora is a next-generation digital repository based on Drupal 8, suited for digital collections management, institutional repository, research data management, or records management. This presentation is a case study of a recent Islandora 8 project for Archives Central to migrate and present over 200,000 records (mixed digital and physical) on behalf of a consortium of district and regional councils in NZ. The records have been modelled as linked data using the new Records in Contexts (RiC) ontology. RiC is a conceptual model and ontology intended to bring ISAD(G), ISAAR CPF and similar standards into the semantic era. The case study will show how Drupal can support linked data (by exposing content as JSON-LD, and indexing data in a Resource Description Framework (RDF) triplestore).
