CONTENTdm Quick Start Workshop - free at NEFLIN

In 2009 the State Library of Florida's group subscription to the FirstSearch® Base Package was expanded to include CONTENTdm. This means that all libraries in Florida can request access to CONTENTdm® for digital collection building at no additional charge. Register to attend this Quick Start workshop to learn all about it.

What is CONTENTdm? OCLC's CONTENTdm Digital Collection Management Software can make everything in digital collections available to everyone, everywhere. No matter the format - local history archives, maps, newspapers, slide libraries or audio/video - CONTENTdm can handle the storage, management and delivery of digital collections to library users across the Web.

If a NEFLIN library has a small digital collection or they are planning a digitization project, CONTENTdm "quick start" may be just what they need to jump start their digital library. This entry-level, hosted version of CONTENTdm will support their efforts to increase access to the digital content their library provides. Many libraries use it to help promote and gain support for their new digital collection program. Attend this half-day seminar to learn more about OCLC's CONTENTdm and get introductory training on adding digital items and metadata to CONTENTdm.

All NEFLIN libraries are eligible to receive at no charge:
  • the CONTENTdm software hosted by OCLC,
  • three downloadable Project Clients for building your digital collections
  • 10GB of storage for up to 3,000 digital items.

NEFLIN, 2233 Park Avenue, Suite 402, Orange Park, FL 32073
