new interface for the Tufts Digital Library

Digital Collections and Archives, in conjunction with UIT Educational & Scholarly Technology Services, is pleased to announce the launch of our new interface for the Tufts Digital Library.

Our new interface is built entirely on FLOSS (Free, Libre, and Open Source Software). The underlying data storage is managed with the Fedora Commons Repository. Our user interface is developed using Blacklight and Hydra, with indexing powered by Solr.

Our old interface, an entirely homegrown product written in Java, served us well for nearly a decade, and we are thankful for the designers and developers who helped us bring our materials to the public as one of the earlier university digital libraries. Now we have a new design which brings a modern discovery interface to aid our users, and a broad community of developers with whom we can collaborate.

DCA is grateful for everyone who has helped us bring this new interface from design to fruition in one year.
