OCLC's CONTENTdm digital collection management software has been used as a platform for many interesting and timely archival projects. Morris Library Special Collections Research Center at Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC) has successfully used this platform to migrate and host digitized archival photograph collections. Inspired by presentations at archival workshops, we are currently using CONTENTdm to create a campus news index documenting SIUC’s historic commitment to ethnic and racial diversity.
