The Mississippi State University Libraries hosted the first annual CONTENTdm Southeastern Users Group Meeting . CONTENTdm is promoted as “the most powerful and flexible digital collection management package on the market …used by libraries, universities, government agencies, museums, corporations, historical societies, and a host of other organizations to support hundreds of diverse digital collections.”
OCLC, owner of CONTENTdm and the official sponsor of the three day event, sponsored only four such groups nationwide, offering financial support and providing pre-conference training for new users. The event attracted digital librarians, collection managers, developers and technicians from across the South East.
The Meeting was held in the Mitchell Memorial Library, Thursday, July 31- Friday, August 1. Pre-conference training sessions were held Wednesday, July 30.
