Scholar@UC 1.6 has an enhanced image experience and a new video work type.

With the Scholar@UC 1.6, we have enhanced the user’s image experience with the OpenSeaDragon viewer.  This viewer allows zooming, panning, and full screen display of images, including JP2.   Take a look at an image from John Wallrodt’s The Durrës Regional Archaeological Project (DRAP)https://scholar.uc.edu/works/images/j96021256

Scholar@UC also supports video deposits with a new work type and metadata targeted towards this type of material.  This is the first step towards a larger video experience.

The other changes with version 1.6 are:

  • Removed the contact form captcha requirement for logged in users.
  • Added the ability to assign read-only permissions to individuals or to a group.
  • Added a new work type for video content.
  • Added an embedded image viewer.
  • Bug fixes
    • Editor rights from additional editors are now also granted to linked resources.
    • Required form fields no longer accept only space characters as valid content.
    • Users are now properly hidden until they own a work.
    • All form fields now reject content that includes HTML script tags.
