Digital libraries make our unique collections accessible on a global scale, removing geographic and temporal boundaries, allowing simultaneous use of resources, improving our ability to retrieve information, and reducing strain on fragile items. The Building Digital Collections with CONTENTdm workshop will provide participants with handson training using the digital asset management software. Workshop attendees will learn to build new digital collections, develop metadata schema, take advantage of controlled vocabularies, create descriptive metadata, and upload digital objects. Additionally, participants will approve and publish a digital collection, edit digital library content, and manage the web user interface for a collection. By the end of the workshop, attendees will be able to create, publish, and administer digital collections using CONTENTdm.
