The Open Repositories Steering Committee are delighted to announce that OR2013 will take place in Prince Edward Island, in July 2013. This will mark the first time that Open Repositories has been held in Canada.

The Host Organising Committee for OR2013 add:

The University of Prince Edward Island, and DiscoveryGarden are pleased to announce that Prince Edward Island has been selected as the location for Open Repositories 2013!

Islands are often viewed as isolated and insular, but those that live on islands think differently: Island life is all about Community. Join us on Prince Edward Island in July 2013 to discuss the next generation of repositories. This will be the first Open Repositories Conference in Canada and what a better place to make history than the historic birthplace of Canadian Confederation.

Prince Edward Island is also the birthplace of Islandora, the award-winning, open-source framework that combines Drupal and Fedora to create a robust, digital asset management system. The Islandora community is strongly based out of the University of Prince Edward Island, and continues to grow along side the open-source community.

Prince Edward Island has miles of sandy beaches, lined by red cliffs and rich pastures. Come and enjoy a round of golf at an award winning course, visit a local artisan workshop, and sample fine culinary products, fresh from the farm and sea.

We look forward to seeing everyone in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island for OR2013!

  1. […] vuonna Open Repositories järjestetään klassisten tyttökirjojen näyttämöllä, Prince Edward Islandilla Kanadassa. Vuonna 2014 konferenssi pidetään sitten niinkin eksoottisessa paikassa kuin Helsingissä. […]
