CONTENTdm is a digital collections management application that provides several important administration features of value when undertaking a digitization project. Many institutions already use Drupal to power their web presence. CONTENTdm's native interface makes creating a single integrated website difficult. The CONTENTdm Integration Modules project was created by Mark Jordan of Simon Fraser University Library to solve this issue by providing a series of Drupal modules that help create a single integrated website - allowing the searching of digital collections hosted in a CONTENTdm server from within a Drupal website.
By the end of this talk, you will have a better understanding of:
*Why you would want to use CONTENTdm rather than simply Drupal for digital collections management;
*How the CONTENTdm Integration Modules work under the hood;
*How to install and setup these modules with Drupal to help present an integrated website.
This talk will be of particular interest to those who develop Drupal websites for use in libraries, archives, or museums, but also to Drupal developers and administrators in general.
