CONTENTdm is a digital collection management system that is owned, operated and maintained by OCLC. As one of the most popular software platforms for digital collections, CONTENTdm is used by university archives, large library collections, art museums, and cultural institutions around the world.
Who should attend: anyone interested in learning how CONTENTdm works and its capabilities, or for those who may want to refresh their memory on the basics.
Nicole Menchise, Digitization and Archives Coordinator at the Long Island Library Resources Council, trains individuals on Long Island (New York) in using CONTENTdm in preparation to participate in the New York Heritage Digital Collections website hosted by the Empire State Library Network.
This is not an OCLC sponsored event.

FOR OUR PARTICIPANTS - We have implemented a two step verification process for security purposes and to maintain accurate attendance records. You will need both a LILRC and a Zoom account.
If you do not already have a LILRC account you will be prompted to create one (if you have forgotten your password, and need help resetting it you can email Eliscia at firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you do not already have a zoom account you will be prompted to do so upon logging into the meeting. If this is the first time you are using Zoom, after you have created an account, you can join the meeting by entering the Meeting ID/ Password provided to you in the confirmation email. You can access all subsequent Zoom meetings by clicking the meeting link in the confirmation email.
As the Digitization and Archives Coordinator for LILRC, Menchise is basing these webinars on some elements of the preservation workshops she has done in the past. The inspiration came from the "Ask An Archivist" segment she writes for the Long Island Archives Newsletter published bi-monthly for LILRC.
