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.

It is expensive and needs dedicated support but it is a overall good product. I also really like the Dev team and support teams, they are really responsive and the community of users that support each other is great. You need an enterprise team to support this, it is not meant for a small team or shop.

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.

Over all it is fine, the system does have it quirks and challenges, I wish we could see the assets in bulk faster, it would be nice if there was more control around how things are downloaded. Overall the UI is clean and works well. the searching always works, and we have never had it not work when we need it to. the collections, sharing and links all work great.

OTTM team is great, the support and the user community they have built is amazing. I have check in with the product development team and they listen and are responsive. I can say enough about the user community, from the big big companies to the smaller ones, everyone is open and willing to help each other out.

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.

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.
