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 from the CONTENTdm Collection of Collections are featured on the OCLC website. The featured collections for September are Civil War, Mount St. Helens Post-Eruption Chemistry, Bank Street Publications, and Schuman Musical Instruments.
University of Central Florida
This collection hosts materials owned by the University of Central Florida and made available to the Civil War in the American South project. In recognition of the sesquicentennial of the start of the American Civil War, Civil War in the American South provides a central portal to access digital collections from the Civil War Era (1850–1865) held by members of the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries.
University of Washington Libraries
The Mount St. Helens Post-Eruption Chemistry collection provides a look at both the human and scientific sides of studying the eruption of a volcano. The slides were taken by Professor William Zoller during research trips with his team to study the chemistry and impacts of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. His group was the first allowed in after the initial eruption.
Bank Street College of Education
The Bank Street Publications collection contains older materials from the Bank Street College of Education, including issues of 69 Bank Street, an early Bureau of Educational Experiments publication, beginning in October 1934. Individual essays and articles by faculty and staff are also included.
Southern Oregon University Library
Images of 100 wind, string, and percussion instruments, from the much larger Schuman Collection of Musical Instruments, represent musical traditions of the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
