Organizations worldwide are using CONTENTdm digital collection management software to create thousands of outstanding digital collections and to provide easy access to their unique holdings.

This month, four collections are featured on the OCLC website. The featured collections for February are Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Seattle Historical Photograph Collection, Drawings, Paintings & Sculpture from the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, and University of Scranton Football.

Ogden Museum of Southern Art

Ogden Museum of Southern Art

Over the past three decades, New Orleans entrepreneur and art collector Roger Houston Ogden has assembled one of the finest collections of southern visual art. The collection includes almost 500 paintings and drawings, both abstract and figurative.


 

Seattle Historical Photograph Collection

Seattle Public Library

The Seattle Historical Photograph Collection contains more than 1,500 images that illuminate the early history of Seattle. These images were taken by the pioneering photographers of their time and depict Seattle scenes and people from before, during and after Seattle's Great Fire in 1889.

 

Drawings, Paintings & Sculpture from the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum

Georgia O'Keeffe Museum

The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum's collection contains over 3,000 works of art. Foremost among those items are over 1,000 works by O'Keeffe herself, comprising the largest repository of her work available to the public in a single institution. Other artists represented in the collection include Arthur Dove, John Marin, Marsden Hartley, and Edward Hopper.
 

University of Scranton Football

University of Scranton

From 1892 through 1960, the University of Scranton (and its predecessor, St. Thomas College) proudly housed a varsity football team, called alternately the Tommies or the Royals. This collection features over 1,000 photographs from the history of University of Scranton football, as well as a set of digitized game programs.
