In addition to a keynote session from OCLC on the redesign of the CONTENTdm user interface, we will have sessions focusing on:
- How Do I . . . ? These sessions focuses on the highly practical, e.g., giving specific instructions on how to get things done.
- Increasing use of your CONTENTdm collections, e.g., how to market CONTENTdm collections, partnering with other organizations, how to integrate CONTENTdm objects into other types of services.
This conference was originally presented on Friday, February 19, 2010 in the Amigos online classroom. The entire conference is now available to those that couldn't register for the live presentations.

Due to an unforeseen conflict, Phyllis Kaiden will not be able to be our keynote speaker for the conference.
What is the best user experience for end users of CONTENTdm? As OCLC engages in reworking the CONTENTdm Web Templates, usability studies are being conducted to inform the design. Our usability studies have included focus groups, walkthroughs, interviews, and surveys with both librarians and end-users. Come hear the results of these ongoing studies and find out how this usability research is shaping the redesign of the Web Templates.
This session is a repeat of one done at the 2010 American Library Association Midwinter Meeting and repeated during a February 10th OCLC webinar.
TIDES is database powered by CONTENTdm and maintained by librarians and educators at Stephen F. Austin State University. In this session, we will explain how TIDES got it's start, how key partners have helped to expand our resources and services, and how we are reaching out to the university and K-12 communities to keep our materials relevant and usable.
