CONTENTdm April 2017 release is now live

The April 2017 release for CONTENTdm is now live, and it further improves the newly redesigned end-user interface for CONTENTdm. The CONTENTdm responsive website adapts to any screen size and has significant usability, performance and accessibility improvements.

This release contains several additional improvements to the new responsive website:

  • Support for custom pages
  • Navigation links added to the page footer
  • Multilingual editing in the Website Configuration Tool
  • Search engine optimizations
  • Several minor bug fixes

For more details about this release, see the CONTENTdm Release Notes page. This release is available to users hosted in an OCLC data center.

Note: The responsive website exists alongside current 6.x CONTENTdm websites. Public URLs will default to version 6.x websites until you request to make the switch. Nothing in 6.x is changing in this release. When you are ready for your end users to start using the new responsive website, you will need to contact OCLC Support to schedule the upgrade.

Hear from a CONTENTdm user about the new interface:

I think it looks so good. We have some really cool collections, like our David Lewis Fungi collection. I just think it looks fantastic in that new interface. It's a lot more attractive.”
