Abstract: Splash screens, or database landing pages, are a feature of CONTENTdm and other digital collection sites where the users first find a resource on the web. This presentation explores the various types of splash screens used today, how WCU has created them for the various digital collections it has, and the future plans for customizing APIs to dynamically create them.
