Pros and Cons

  • Constant URLs
  • User interface is good
  • Run by OCLC, not likely to disappear
  • We use it for getting our collections to the public but also we use it simply as a bridge back to our own database, the rate we pay for the amount of minimum data is quite a bit. Since we do not use it as a digital preservation system I wish the there were lower rates for the type of use we need.

Pros and Cons

  • Relatively easy to use for staff to manage collections, without complex workflows.
  • The end-user interface is friendly, a user can easily navigate around the image with zooming, panning, etc. There is a built-in video player, which is nice.
  • The product is relatively inexpensive.
  • It is easy to implement and maintain.
  • 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.
