Abstract

The Ohio State University Libraries’ Web site is large, including over 100,000 files at the beginning of the implementation, and the content model decentralized. In order to streamline the method by which content providers added content to the site, to facilitate a consistent design, and to ease maintenance of the site, it was determined that a content management system was needed. This presentation will describe the requirements identified, the thorough tests of 3 different content management systems that led to the selection of SilverStripe, and the implementation of SilverStripe. This presentation was delivered as a concurrent session at the 2009 LITA National Forum.
