Two more weeks, two more CMS features...

It's been two weeks since we last discussed Content Management Systems. But that doesn't mean we have let the topic rest!

If you have been reading the blog, you know that we have been busy recently. Voltaire and Devon had the opportunity to visit with our colleagues at VIMS, speak to the Board of Visitors, and have less formal meetings with other folks while they were here.

What you might not know is that the re.web project team has been hard at work behind the scenes:
  • We took a trip across the bridge to begin technical conversations with the ITNS staff at VIMS prior to the mStoner visit.
  • Mark Windley has been calling and emailing CMS vendors, trying to find out which products provide the features we most desire (all these cool features we've been telling you about).
  • And Mark and I both have been running down references on some of the key CMS vendors, to see what other institutions think.
So that's our excuse for taking a week off from the exciting discussion of CMS features... But now we're back, with two cool new features to highlight:
  • Workflow
  • Content Reuse
See this week's discussion, and let us know what you think!
