The Canadian Centre for Ethnomusicology at the University of Alberta has developed new Fedora management applications and a Fedora powered public Website for the Candian Culture Online fund. The South Asian Music in Canada project developed a four terabyte project repository, including culturally and linguistically diverse materials in video, audio, image and text digitized from University archives and community partners. An AJAX-powered repository management Web application, a cluster-computing media processing engine, and dynamic forms technologies support the repository and will be demonstrated. Issues and experiences surrounding Community-University collaborative repository management will be discussed. A prototype automatic media file processing cluster using commodity PC hardware and Fedora API will also be demonstrated.
