The Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture (Fedora) is set of very general architectural abstractions about digital information. It can be used to express a variety of management schemes that support flexible use of digital content that is well positioned to be durable over a very long time. Fedora Commons is a private non-profit corporation that has set up to sustain the open-source Fedora software, under development since 2001. Fedora is in use by a variety of academic, business and government institutions around the world as a foundation for such things as institutional repositories, data curation schemes, digital libraries and open access publishing. This talk will introduce Fedora concepts, provide a high level overview of the software and talk about ways it is being used for different information management solutions. It will also discuss Fedora Commons and its community-building activities.
