This Confluence wiki site, maintained by DuraSpace prior to the recent merger with LYRASIS, will transition from the duraspace.org domain to the lyrasis.org domain on Saturday, Nov 16 beginning at approximately 7pm ET. A period of downtime of 2-3 hours is expected. After the transition, this wiki will be available at https://wiki.lyrasis.org/. All links to duraspace.org wiki pages will be redirected to the correct lyrasis.org URL. If you have questions prior to or following the transition please contact: wikihelp@lyrasis.org.

This documentation refers to an earlier version of Islandora. https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/ISLANDORA/Start is current.

Overview

Islandora Solution Packs are Drupal modules offering custom Content Model Objects, Workflows, and Ingest Forms. Solution Packs can be downloaded from the Release Notes and Downloads page.

Solution Packs present a starting point for users with particular types of data, such as books or audio files. A solution pack will allow users to ingest and edit a particular type of content, including derivatives and metadata. A solution pack also provides a default empty collection for users, configured for that type of content.

You may combine solution packs together in collection objects to create collections of mixed data. Solution Packs can also be edited, extended, and customized to meet the needs of your organization.

Most Solution Packs support integration with other server-side applications and Drupal modules, which you must install in order to use their additional functionality

The following Solution Packs are Available:

Dependencies

Please see individual solution pack pages for details.

General Solution Pack Configuration

Solution packs are Drupal modules. For any solution pack you wish to use, make sure you have installed the dependencies outlined in the documentation for that module, and any required Drupal modules, before installing the Solution Pack module. For information about how to install Drupal modules, please see Installing Contributed Modules (Drupal 7) on Drupal.org.

As of Islandora 7.x-1.3, all solution packs make use of the print hook, which will add a "print" button to collection and object pages. This can be overridden by editing page template files.
