Online Sharing of Materials
The resources kept in CONTENTdm is made available worldwide to more people. This is because the system integrates with WorldCat, which is an online catalog of library collections. This is a free and self-service tool that allows scholars, students, and anyone to search through the digital archives, wherever they are in the world.
Asset storage is made in a manner that is more efficient and convenient for organizations utilizing it. This is accomplished in various ways, one of which is the support for different kinds of audio, video, image, and document files. Users are in total control of their asset’s description, display properties, and access. All the mentioned parameters can be customized via metadata fields which empowers hassle-free retrieval of files.
Users, such as libraries, wouldn’t have to worry about the safety of the digitized originals, master files, and other materials they keep in the system because they are all being kept safely in a preservation hub. The system regularly inspects accounts to ensure that no one can tamper with the files kept. There are quality checks being conducted each time something is being saved as well that allows tracking of individual asset’s health record. Security reports are also being periodically given to users, informing them of their collection’s status.
