About the Event
The third annual OCLC Western CONTENTdm Users Group Meeting is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, June 4 and 5, 2009, at the University of Nevada, Reno.
This meeting has been designed for and by CONTENTdm users in order to address the unique needs of this community. All CONTENTdm users, licensees and evaluators, and other interested parties are invited to attend.
Again this year, two workshops will be available as pre-meeting activities on Wednesday, June 3:
CONTENTdm Basic Instruction for Users 5.0, a workshop appropriate for organizations new to CONTENTdm or for those who wish to preview the software, will include hands-on exercises and cover: creating collections, using the compound document wizard, metadata and controlled vocabulary implementation, and maintaining collections with batch replacement of objects.
CONTENTdm 5.0 Update will cover both a functional overview of the software and a look at some common tasks and workflows using the all-new Project Client. Included will be how to streamline and optimize data entry with metadata templates that are customizable by file type. Use of the new editing function called “Find in Collection” will be demonstrated, as well as working with EAD finding aids.
Please join your colleagues and OCLC Western staff to examine important issues involving all aspects of CONTENTdm.
