OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. (OCLC) has added new features and functionality to CONTENTdm ( to make it easy for libraries to manage and access documents in PDF and integrate digital collection growth into their current cataloging workflows. OCLC’s CONTENTdm software offers a complete set of tools to store, manage, and deliver digital collections such as historical documents, photos, newspapers, audio, and video on the Web.

With CONTENTdm 4.3, libraries can more easily manage PDF files. Multiple-page PDFs can be automatically converted to compound objects with searchable full text, which allows users to retrieve page-level search results within a PDF. Full-text extraction and generation of thumbnail images from the PDF happen automatically. End users can also select any subset of pages from the PDF to print or save, making it easy to get just the information they need.

The new CONTENTdm release also supports the OCLC Connexion digital import feature which allows catalogers using the Connexion client to add digital items to CONTENTdm collections during the Connexion cataloging process. This new feature streamlines digital collection creation by integrating it with standard cataloging workflows.

CONTENTdm is used by hundreds of institutions worldwide to manage thousands of digital collections. To see how some of these institutions are using CONTENTdm, visit
