Collect and manage transient web content

Web-based content, from single documents to entire websites, is highly transient and at risk of being lost, yet often falls directly within your library's collecting scope. With OCLC's Web Harvester, you can capture and manage web content as part of your cataloging and digital content management workflows.

Enhance discovery of your web-based content

Once you've added harvested content to your CONTENTdm® collection, users around the world will be able to discover it through your CONTENTdm website as well as through WorldCat.org™ and WorldCat® Discovery. Each harvested item added to CONTENTdm using the Web Harvester is associated with its WorldCat record via a persistent URL based on the OCLC number of the WorldCat record.
