Atlas and OCLC Announce CONTENTdm and Aeon Integration

Atlas Systems, a provider of time-saving solutions for libraries, and OCLC announced the integration of the CONTENTdm Digital Collection Management Software and Atlas System's Aeon software for managing special collections user services. The integration enables end users of CONTENTdm collections to place an online request to view the original item in a library’s special collections reading room or order publication-quality reproductions via Aeon, paying any usage fees online with a credit card. The University of Miami (Fla.) and the Claremont Colleges Library (Calif.) have successfully piloted the integration.

According to Christian Dupont, Aeon program director for Atlas Systems, the integration is managed with a custom script that adds a button to item record displays in CONTENTdm online collections. End users can click the button either to page the original item for reading room use or to order a higher-quality reproduction. “Libraries want to make it easy for researchers to not only find information online but to also then request desired services through a simple, streamlined process,” Dupont said. “The integration of Aeon with CONTENTdm enables Aeon to function as the ‘shopping cart’ service that many CONTENTdm sites have been seeking.”

Aeon enhances special collections user services by offering researchers the convenience of automated online requesting through a personalized web account. Aeon maximizes staff efficiency while providing unparalleled item tracking, security, and statistics.

CONTENTdm Digital Collection Management Software handles the storage, management, and delivery of collections to users across the web. More than 2,000 organizations worldwide use CONTENTdm to provide access to their digital collections.
