Digital Collections Changes

On Tuesday, March 25 the Libraries Digital Collections site moved from CONTENTdm 5.4 to CONTENTdm 6.7. Our Digital Collections will look and behave differently with this move. Our end-users will see many improvements including:
  • improved search capabilities including faceted searching,
  • modern social features of commenting, rating, and social media integration,
  • improved page navigation in compound documents including a page-flip feature,
  • intuitive zooming and panning of large images
As of March 25th the official URL will be http://digitalcollections.lib.washington.edu however, all of our previous URLs will forward to the new site so people with bookmarks and such should still be able to access the collections via these old links.
