METRO is the development home of Archipelago Commons, or simply Archipelago, an Open Source Digital Objects Repository system based on the popular CMS Drupal8/9 and released under GLP V.3 License.

Archipelago is a mix of deeply integrated custom-coded Drupal modules (the Strawberryfield Modules, made with care by us) and a curated and well-configured Drupal instance, running under a discrete and well-planned set of service containers.

More information about Archipelago can be found at https://archipelago.nyc/.

Support, Hosting, and Help

Archipelago Commons is entirely open source. You are encouraged to extend and configure it in any way you like.

If you don't have the bandwidth to do so, we can help. We offer a variety of hosted options and support services. Please contact us at info@metro.org if you have any questions.
