I’m very excited about the potential to show FSU’s special collections, which include hundreds of thousands of rare items, to a wide audience through FL-Islandora,” said Dean of FSU Libraries Julia Zimmerman.

The Florida State University Digital Library is run on the FL-Islandora platform, managed by the Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC). Florida State University Libraries has been a development partner with FLVC on the state’s common digital platform project.

These partnerships enabled the project to succeed. “Our collaborative relationships with FLVC as well as with LYRASIS have made this development possible,” said Dean Zimmerman. “Our combined efforts will provide Islandora capabilities to many other libraries in Florida and nationally.”
