The International Particle Physics Outreach Group (IPPOG) is a network of scientists, science educators and communication specialists working across the globe in informal science education and outreach for particle physics. Members initiate, develop and participate in a variety of activities in classrooms, public events, festivals, exhibitions, museums, institute open days, etc. The IPPOG Resource Database was designed to provide a central location hosting written and multimedia material, tools, recipes, and other content to serve these activities. Objects in the database are categorised by language, target audience, age group, media type, and physics topics. Current efforts include porting the database to the new CERN web infrastructure and improving the interface to serve a public audience. We present our efforts to update procurement and categorisation of educational content, in addition to implementation of the redesigned user interface.
