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, based on standard use cases with them. Out of the box, they offer users the ability to ingest particular types of content, generate derivatives and metadata, and edit and update data of this type in the repository. A solution pack also provides a default empty collection for users. However, 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:
Solution packs are Drupal modules. For any solution pack you wish to use, make sure you have installed the dependencies outlined in this document, and any required Drupal modules, before installing the Solution Pack module.

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 can be overridden by editing page template files.
