Sharing your Collections

Through the IslandArchives portal, the Robertson Library can suport community members and partners by providing training, consultations, and the technical infrastructure to steward digital collections. 

Partnering with the Robertson Library, individuals and organizations can digitize their collections and describe and upload them to the IslandArchives portal where they are made accessible to all.  The portal leverages the innovative digital asset management system, Islandora, which is under development at the University of Prince Edward Island
