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.

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

With CONTENTdm “quick start,” your library will receive an OCLC-hosted CONTENTdm website with the ability to store and manage up to 100 items.

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