CONTENTdm and WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway Overview
16 June 2015
This presentation provides an overview of CONTENTdm 6 and the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway. (3:00-5:00 p.m., EST)
This presentation provides an overview of CONTENTdm 6 and the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway. It includes discussion of the functionality built into the CONTENTdm Administration modules, including Collection and Website Configuration. A live demonstration using the very latest OCLC Hosted CONTENTdm version includes adding digital items to a Collection both with the web-based “add” function, and with the Project Client. Both simple and compound objects are used to build and demonstrate browsing and searching the CONTENTdm website. Because CONTENTdm supports the Open Archives Initiative’s protocol for metadata harvesting, (OAI-PMH) published collections may be shared through the WorldCat sync and OAI functions. The presentation ends with a brief look at CONTENTdm item metadata as displayed in WorldCat after being harvested through the Gateway according to this standard protocol.
