Islandora Solution Packs are Drupal modules offering custom Content Model Objects, Workflows, and Ingest Forms. Solution Packs can be downloaded from the Release Notes and Downloads page.
Solution Packs present a starting point for users with particular types of data, such as books or audio files. A solution pack will allow users to ingest and edit a particular type of content, including derivatives and metadata. A solution pack also provides a default empty collection for users, configured for that type of content.
You may combine solution packs together in collection objects to create collections of mixed data. Solution Packs can also be edited, extended, and customized to meet the needs of your organization.
Most Solution Packs support integration with other server-side applications and Drupal modules, which you must install in order to use their additional functionality.
The following Solution Packs are Available:
- Audio Solution Pack

Please see individual solution pack pages for details.
General Solution Pack Configuration
Solution packs are Drupal modules. For any solution pack you wish to use, make sure you have installed the dependencies outlined in the documentation for that module, and any required Drupal modules, before installing the Solution Pack module. For information about how to install Drupal modules, please see Installing Contributed Modules (Drupal 7) on Drupal.org.
As of Islandora 7.x-1.3, all solution packs make use of the print hook, which will add a "print" button to collection and object pages. This button can be toggled on or off at Administration » Islandora.
