In CONTENTdm version 6.1, OCLC says that it has further enhanced the software by providing end users with social features to comment, tag and rate digital items, encouraging engagement with their library’s digital collections. In addition, administrators are now able to do more customisation to their collections websites, including localising all navigation and messaging elements into one or more languages (11 languages are supplied with CONTENTdm: Catalan, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Thai).

With the latest release, end users can also now easily download and print images and documents they find in online digital collections. For images, different sizes may be offered for download including full resolution, if stored in the Archival File Manager. And newspapers with article segmentation are now said to be fully discoverable, allowing end users to search for and discover article-level metadata and see individual articles highlighted within each page via an enhanced newspaper viewer.
