The PDF Solution Pack module adds functionality to Islandora for ingesting and viewing PDF files. It uses the ImageMagick library and module to create derivative thumbnail and preview images. Because of the text-based nature of PDF files, it can also be used to create or append easily searchable text datastreams to the object, which can later be configured through Solr to appear in searches.
