On May 16, 2017 Fedora community members presented a webinar entitled ” Powering Linked Data and Hosted Solutions with Fedora.” David Wilcox, Fedora Product Manager with DuraSpace, provided an overview of Fedora with a focus on its native linked data capabilities. Hannah Frost, Manager, Digital Library Product and Service Management with Stanford University, presented Hyku, the Hydra-in-a-box repository product, which provides a hosted option for Fedora-based repositories.  Esmé Cowles, Digital Infrastructure Developer with Princeton University, demonstrated how the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) can be integrated with Fedora and Hydra to manage digitized books, manuscripts, and other image-based content in a flexible and reusable way. Tom Murphy, Director of Computing and Network Services with the University of Michigan – ICPSR, discussed going into production with Fedora 4 using a custom application framework.

For your convenience a recording of this webinar along with the presentation slides is available at https://duraspace.org/duraspace-solutions.
