ContentDM Digital Collection Showcase

All of our current ContentDM users (or prospective ones) might be interested in all the possibilities for using this application for content besides images. Today I saw how Ball State University is using it for oral histories within their Middletown Digital History Oral Collections. They outline the detailed process (including their metadata schema) on their wiki. The collection is astounding particularly in that they have managed to digitize analog interviews ranging from 1971 to 2006, and place them into an easily accessible format. I am told that the presentation will be available from the ContentDm site soon.
