Cataloging staff and other members of CM met earlier this week in a workshop designed to take a look at CONTENTdm, the software used by the Library to manage its digital collections. Topics covered by presenters Richard Jenkins, Brendan Owens, Brendan Smith, and myself included CONTENTdm functionality, portal development, metadata standards for the lecture archive, and cataloging with the acquisitions station.
A Web session hosted by OCLC on the version 5 CONTENTdm upgrade is being held in LIB145 on Tuesday December 16, from 2:00 – 5:00 pm. The room can probably hold a few more people if you’re interested in attending.
Students from Sight and Sound II and Animation Production screened their work on the evening of December 4th in Dana Auditorium. Links to the online videos will be available soon on the Middlebury Film and Media blog.
MCAB will sponsor six films during JTerm, starting with Mean Girls on the 9th at 7:00 and 10:00 pm in Dana Auditorium. Some films will be shown in the Grille — check the College Calendar for details.
