New Feature - Collections

Do you have Collections or Resources that don't fit the mold?

Stacks Collections helps you to manage all your remaining disperate resources or internal content repositories.

From documents to media, Stacks collections empowers you to upload comma-delimited lists of resources. Custom map and label any metadata into a faceted search experience embedded right within your Stacks website.

Take this seamless concept to the next level by including Stacks Collections in Stacks Bento Search; presenting results, alongside results from your Discovery System(s), Catalog(s), website, and more.

New Feature - Theme Style Editor

Introducing a new way to manage the look and feel of your website. The new Themes Style Editor lets you control colors specific to areas of your website. Looking to preview that new aesthetic change you made? Easy. The 'preview' option gives you a sneak peek into any changes you made before going live.

The FOLIO project team is getting very excited about the upcoming “Beta" release milestone. Our presentation for the Product Council went incredibly well in March and as a result, the team has been asked to inform the community and demonstrate some of the modules we’ve created at a FOLIO forum in April. 

The positive reactions to this work are a great momentum builder as we prepare for the upcoming WolfCon meeting in Durham, North Carolina this May. While working on integration details with the other project teams, this meeting will also be an excellent opportunity to engage FOLIO stakeholders face to face, get direct feedback, and refine our overall workflow designs.
