dmMonocle Released!

By Brian Egan on September 28, 2009 4:28 PM | Permalink

Yay! I’ve packaged dmMonocle, created a couple of screencasts showing how to use and install dmMonocle, and put up enough documentation to get people rolling. And now, we’ve released it all into the library wilderness (the CONTENTdm listserv, Web4Lib Listserv, and Diglib listserv)!

The official announcement

Do you run CONTENTdm and want to make browsing detailed images in your digital collections as easy as using Google Maps? Want to make the most of your high resolution scans? Wish you could provide a better viewing experience for your users? Now you can!

dmMonocle is a stand-alone, open-source image viewer for CONTENTdm collections, intended as a replacement for the default image viewer provided with CONTENTdm. The goal of the project is to make CONTENTdm images, such as photos, maps, and scanned documents, easier to view and navigate.
