The Robertson Library at the University of Prince Edward Island recently embarked on a comprehensive development program for the stewardship of information resources in the three primary academic “landscapes”: administration, learning and research. This paper presents our experience developing a collaborative research environment using the open source Drupal and Fedora systems as the two primary components, including technical details of how the two systems were integrated. A comparison of our “Repository Redux” approach with more traditional models for institutional repositories, which have not always met with the anticipated success, will be discussed. The session will also touch on aspects of capacity building and staff development at a small academic institution which are enabled by the use of open source applications.
