ABSTRACT
In October of 2012, the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) launched an updated version of IslandScholar, UPEI's Institutional repository. The repository, available from http://www.islandscholar.ca, is built on Islandora 6 (http://islandora.ca). The repository includes a number of new features, including: CSL integration for ingest, site display, and export of user-specific bibliographies; MADS-based Authority integration for Departments and Authors (with authorities created automatically using LDAP); batch ingest from Refworks (crosswalked to MODS for storage in the repository); embargo and statistics functions. Features from the first version of IslandScholar were also migrated to the new site, including Sherpa/Romeo integration (which provides just-in-time information about open access policies).
