CONTENTdm® "quick start" in Australia and New Zealand


What is CONTENTdm?

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 files—CONTENTdm can handle the storage, management and delivery of your collections to users across the Web.

Amlib™, VDX®, WorldShare® Management Services and WorldCat® Discovery Services customers are eligible to receive CONTENTdm "quick start" at no cost. TePuna members are also eligible for this offer. The offer includes:

  • the CONTENTdm software hosted by OCLC
  • three Project Clients for building your digital collections
  • 10GB of storage for up to 3,000 digital items

If you find that your requirements exceed any of these limits, we'll work with you to review purchasing options to continue seamless growth of your collections.
