CARLI CONTENTdm Upgrade Save the Date Announcement

Save the Date: CONTENTdm Software Upgrade, June 23-28, 2015

At 5pm on Tuesday, June 23, 2015, CARLI will begin upgrading the server software running CARLI Digital Collections from CONTENTdm version 5.4 to version 6.10.  We expect the process to be completed no later than Sunday, June 28, 2015.

This upgrade will provide new features to the public interface of CONTENTdm, but Project Clients and most staff procedures for adding materials will remain the same.

Before the upgrade begins, all digital items in Project Clients will need to be uploaded to the server and be Approved and Indexed into their respective Collections. 

During the upgrade, a read-only copy of CARLI Digital Collections, current as of 5pm on June 23, will be available for users to view and search at the regular URL:  It will not be possible to add new digital items or edit existing items in the Project Client or CONTENTdm Web Administration, no new collections will be created, collections previously unpublished cannot be newly published, and no edits to collection home pages will be made during the upgrade.

After the upgrade, library staff will need to make a one-time change to the URLs used in the Project Client and for Web Administration.  Step-by-step instructions for making these changes will be provided.

Additional details on the upgrade will be sent to the CARLI CONTENTdm Contacts email list in the next few weeks.  Each institution’s CONTENTdm Contact is listed on the Participating Libraries page.  To update the contact information on this page, please send corrections to .

CARLI has created the CARLI CONTENTdm Upgrade web page with information and links to release notes on CONTENTdm version 6.  This web page will be added to over time to include future announcements, information, and instructions.
