Fedora is the robust, modular, open source repository platform for the management and dissemination of digital content. Fedora is used in a wide variety of institutions including libraries, museums, archives, and government organizations. Fedora Camp, hosted by Emory University Libraries, offers everyone a chance to dive in and learn all about Fedora.

Training will begin with the basics and build toward more advanced concepts–no prior Fedora experience is required. Participants can expect to come away with a deep dive Fedora learning experience coupled with multiple opportunities for applying hands-on techniques working with experienced trainers and Fedora gurus.

Previous Fedora Camps include the inaugural camp held at Duke University, the West Coast camp at CalTech, NYC camp at Columbia U, Texas camp at UT Austin, and NASA Camp at Goddard Space Flight Center.  The camp curriculum will provide a comprehensive overview of Fedora by exploring such topics as:

  • Core & Integrated features
  • Data modeling and linked data
  • Samvera and Islandora
  • Migrating to Fedora
  • Deploying Fedora in production
  • Preservation Services

The curriculum will be delivered by a knowledgeable team of instructors from the Fedora community including, David Wilcox, Fedora Product Manager and Andrew Woods, Fedora Technical Lead, Danny Bernstein, DuraSpace Technical Lead and Developer and Jared Whiklo, Web Developer from the University of Manitoba.
