Free CONTENTdm training from OCLC

OCLC is pleased to announce that free, live-online CONTENTdm Digital Collection Management Software training is now available, in addition to the free training that’s already available for Cataloging, Resource Sharing and FirstSearch services.

This free CONTENTdm training, which will be offered on a bimonthly basis, will provide new users with information about the fundamentals of using CONTENTdm to manage their digital collections.

The training is comprised of three, two-hour basic skills courses:

  • CONTENTdm Basic Skills 1: Getting Started with CONTENTdm
  • CONTENTdm Basic Skills 2: Working with Text in CONTENTdm
  • CONTENTdm Basic Skills 3: Maintaining Collections in CONTENTdm

Advances in e-learning technologies and an increased demand for online learning now allow us to provide training at greater economies of scale. OCLC is passing these savings on to members by offering free training on our most-used services.

“We are pleased to be able to add this value to the services Members are using most, thereby increasing our training reach and impact,” says Rachel Van Noord, OCLC Senior Training Manager.
