Tufts University Regional Fedora User Conference was a success

On July 20 2010, DCA and UIT/Academic Technology hosted a regional conference for Fedora users at the Tufts Dental School. The event was very successful in sparking useful conversations and reinforcing strategic relationships.

Thorton Staples of DuraSpace spoke about the union of DSpace and Fedora and about DuraCould, and Mark Leggott of the University of PEI spoke about Islandora, their Drupal and Fedora based digital asset management system. Local Fedora users and those interested in Fedora contributed substantially to the discussion during lightning rounds and birds of a feather sessions.
