    12. 12. Current CONTENTdm user <br />“CONTENTdm 6 is a great step forward. <br /> Using the new website configuration tools made it really simple and quick to customize our digital archive Web site—I probably only needed a couple of hours work. <br /> And avoiding coding is really handy for sites like us with no in-house technical support. The long-term sustainability of our CONTENTdm instance is much more assured knowing that minimal technical input is required from our end.” <br />Edward KirklandProject Manager, My Leicestershire Digital ArchiveUniversity of Leicester<br />
