OCLC's CONTENTdm Digital Collection Management Software can make everything in your digital collections available to everyone, everywhere. No matter the format—local history archives, newspapers, books, maps, slide libraries or audio/video—CONTENTdm can handle the storage, management and delivery of your collections to users across the Web.
The CONTENTdm “quick start” program is an excellent way to explore how CONTENTdm can work for your digital collections. It includes a fully functional CONTENTdm server, maintained and hosted at the OCLC Data Center. You may build your collections using the Web “Add” function and up to three Project Clients. Your collections may use up to 10 GB storage or 3,000 digital objects, whichever you reach first. OCLC offers the CONTENTdm “quick start” as part of its FirstSearch “Base Package” and now is extending this offer to MWDL partners (whether they subscribe to this package or not). Geri will show how CONTENTdm works, and how you can get started with this no-cost program in three easy steps.
