Use-A-Thon at IslandoraCon 2022

What is a Use-a-Thon?

The Islandora Use-a-Thon is an opportunity to work with conference participants, learn new things, and configure Islandora to do something new!

How does it work?

The latest version of Islandora is tightly integrated with Drupal, and very flexible, so many use cases can be solved with a combination of configuration and Drupal contributed modules.
