Last week the CDL released updated versions of the Online Archive of California (OAC) <http://www.oac.cdlib.org/> and eScholarship Editions <http://publishing.cdlib.org/ucpressebooks/>.

The eScholarship Editions home page provides more visible access to various browse options. Most of the other noticeable interface changes were implemented to improve consistency across the services.

The scope of the migration primarily affected the software that powers the web sites; image search results and object views now use CDL’s eXtensible Text Framework (XTF) platform  <http://www.cdlib.org/services/publishing/tools/xtf/ >. All dynamic pages on both sites are now served up via XTF.  Other back-end improvements include refactoring the presentation layer to be able to better support interface customization and adding the ability to emulate the legacy search syntax.

Congratulations and thanks to all staff who made this transition successful.
