Organizations worldwide are using CONTENTdm Digital Collection Management Software to create thousands of outstanding digital collections and to provide easy access to their unique holdings.

This month, four collections from the CONTENTdm Collection of Collections are featured on the OCLC website. The featured collections for April are the Bulletin of the Institute for Antiquity and Christianity, the Dean & Mary Collins Collection, the Design Collection, and the Boyd and Braas Photographs.

Bulletin of the Institute for Antiquity and Christianity

Claremont University Consortium

The Institute for Antiquity and Christianity is a center for basic research on the origins and meaning of the cultural heritage of Western civilization. The Bulletin of the Institute for Antiquity and Christianity is published periodically under the auspices of the Society for Antiquity and Christianity for the general information of persons interested in the research programs of the Institute.

Dean & Mary Collins Collection

Southern Oregon University

Photographs of 100 representative artifacts from the Collins collection of Native American artifacts, donated to SOU by Mary Collins, provide information into the material culture of many Native nations, primarily of the Southwest.

Design Collection

University of Illinois at Chicago

Chicago and graphic design share a long, vital association that stems back to the city's role as the geographical and railway center of the industrial part of the country. As it became a center for the production and distribution of printed materials, Chicago became important in the world of graphic design. This collection reflects that prominence.

Boyd and Braas Photographs

University of Washington Libraries

The partnership of William F. Boyd and George H. Braas began in 1890 and ended when Boyd left the partnership to form his own business. This small collection of 45 images shows the aftermath of the Seattle fire of June 6, 1889 and other pre-20th century views of Seattle, of its pioneers and of the surrounding region.
