CONTENTdm December 2016 release is now live

OCLC has made additional enhancements to the new CONTENTdm responsive website. This release builds on the October launch of a freshly designed user interface that adapts to any screen size and introduced support for the Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) Image API. IIIF is a standard that allows images to be interoperable on the web so that they can be shared across institutions and used in a variety of exciting ways.

The CONTENTdm responsive sites were updated with the December 2016 release on Wednesday, 14 December from 7:30 – 10:30 am United States Eastern Standard time. The CONTENTdm responsive sites did not experience any downtime during this update.

This release contains many requested enhancements and new features including:

  • Faster and smoother pan and zoom image viewer
  • An audio/video player that works on all devices
  • The ability to sort, filter and facet search results.

No action is required on the part of CONTENTdm users for this update. For more details about this release, see the CONTENTdm Release Notes page. This release is available to users hosted by OCLC.

Note: The new CONTENTdm responsive website in the December release will exist side by side with current 6.x CONTENTdm websites. Public CONTENTdm URLs will still default to the 6.x websites, and nothing on those websites is changing. If you'd like to view the new responsive website once your site has been updated, you will be able to see it by adding /digital to the end of your CONTENTdm website URL.
