OCLC
CONTENTdm is well-suited for smaller organizations as a simple solution to present a digital collection on the web. If your need is complex and requires digital preservation as part of the workflow, it may not be the best solution.

Our creative and marketing department consists of several team members with various roles in the organization and process. We receive creative requests from the program managers and other marketing specialists daily. Lytho helps us keep track of all of these projects while listing due dates, proofing dates, completion dates and has the ability for multiple reviewers to be added to the proofing routes. We're able to customize each proofing route to best suit each client. We also have the ability to add outside clients to the proofing routes, which makes the process much smoother. At times I'd say it is less appropriate for very small requests or projects that did not need to go through a full-blown proofing route.

Cons
OCLC
  • As a digital asset management system, one would expect the capability of managing preservation, which CONTENTdm lacks.
  • Lack of batch updating and other advanced metadata management capabilities.
  • The usage statistics does not work, and the company is not planning to fix it, at least based the interaction with tech support staff. Customers were referred to use Google Analytics.

Alternatives Considered
OCLC
We selected CONTENTdm because it had a good reputation, was used by many institutions, provided a good product, and supplied feedback and monthly reports. We are wondering about DPLA and if that will be the next evolution or platform.

We currently use Canto for our final art file storage as well as a web dam for our art files, client files, client portals, etc. Canto and Lytho work seamlessly together in my personal opinion. So, the two should not be stacked against each other but moreso working in tandem. Canto does not have the ability to assign projects and/or proofing abilities.

Return on Investment
OCLC
  • It helped us to get started with our digital collections projects at a relatively low cost.
  • As our needs grew, it became apparent that we needed something more powerful, and that provides better workflows and better statistics and is able to handle the whole life cycle of digitation projects.
