Approving Items & Building the Text Index

After items are uploaded from projects to the CONTENTdm Server, they reside in the pending queue until they are approved by a CONTENTdm administrator. The items must be approved before they can be added to the collection. After they've been approved, the text index must be built to include the item metadata in the database so that they can be discovered by end user searches.

Approving items and building the text index require administration access rights.

To learn more about approving items and building the index using CONTENTdm Administration, see Approving Items and Building the Text Index.

For information about editing items after they have been added to a collection, see Editing Items and Metadata.
