Description:
Description:
The British Library has embarked on a 3-5 year project to build a new online platform to replace its existing website

The Library is now ready to commence the full development of its new website. The first major step will be to confirm the Content Management System that will deliver much of the interface layer for the new site and integrate closely with other key Library systems. The Library is therefore seeking proposals from suppliers of robust, versatile, and well-established products.

The CMS and supplier will:

•use a widely adopted technology stack conforming to the British Library's technical standards. Acceptable programming languages include Java (v6)/J2EE and C#/.Net Framework 4 or higher.
•support personalisation, user-generated content, and other features requiring dynamic, real time delivery of page content reflecting user preferences or behaviour.
•demonstrate a wide user and developer base, including large, complex, and content-rich websites operated by leading brands and/or major organisations in the library, archives, cultural, or heritage sectors, serving multiple audiences and a range of user goals, and attracting millions of users a year.
•offer 24/7 support with readily available access to expert advice 8 am – 6 pm UK time.
•supply a 2-5 year technology roadmap and release lifecycle.
•operate a scalable content delivery architecture that can publish to multiple servers.
•provide API access at content level to external data or content items.
•include customisable workflow.
•allow the administrators to define and configure security and permissions.
•enable delivery of multilingual content.
•address a requirement for persistent identifiers.
•facilitate multi-platform delivery (eg to mobile devices).

Project Budget
We are currently budgeting in the region of £300k for purchase and licensing (or equivalent) of the chosen CMS during the first three years of use.
