Beginning at noon on March 20, 2019, CARLI’s local installation of CONTENTdm and the CARLI Digital Collections website will be migrating to the OCLC-hosted CONTENTdm platform.  We expect the migration to be completed by April 10, 2019.

As we previously announced in summer 2018, OCLC has discontinued support for locally-run CONTENTdm servers like CARLI’s.  This migration is necessary so that CARLI can continue to receive support and upgrades to our CONTENTdm software.

Getting details on just the title level, while also accounting for format and location, can be a challenge in most library collections. Here are some tips on how to incorporate some deduplication into your reports.
