Reed Digital Collections (RDC) is getting a new interface! The Library and CIS have been working hard on rebuilding the software from the ground up to make it more functional, more intuitive, and more fun to work with.
We will be moving to the new system slowly. As of today, the Art & Architecture collection, the library’s collection of Antiquarian Maps, and history professor Doug Fix’s Formosa collection are available in the new interface. All other collections will be moved during the Fall semester.
What happens with My Workspace galleries?
Don’t worry; your galleries will still be available. Over the course of the Fall semester, galleries will migrate and become visible in the new system. At first, you will only see galleries containing images from collections available in the new interface. If a collection is not yet visible in the new interface, you won’t see that collection’s images in your galleries yet. Galleries will appear as soon as the collection is moved over. If the collection is not yet visible, please continue to use galleries in the old interface at http://cdm-workspace.reed.edu//workspace.
What is Reed Digital Collections, again?
Reed Digital Collections is where you will find many Reed theses in electronic form, digitized materials like yearbooks, photos, and manuscripts from Special Collections and Archives, images of art and architecture for use in the classroom, and many faculty-curated teaching and research collections.
