Maximize the visibility of your unique resources via WorldCat®
The WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway is a free, self-service tool that's integrated with CONTENTdm. Upload your collection metadata to WorldCat—the premier database of library materials. From there, students and scholars can find their way to your local digital collections from WorldCat.org, WorldCat Discovery Services and many OCLC partner services.
Store any type of file
CONTENTdm can handle document, image, video and audio files of any kind. With CONTENTdm, you have full control over your digital resources and their descriptions, access and display. You can fully customize metadata fields and maximize end-user discovery of your materials.
"The fact that we were able to work with CONTENTdm in a way that allowed us to cache and support these touchscreens says a lot about CONTENTdm and OCLC's technical support staff. It was a great partnership."
Chief Information Officer, City of Norfolk
