The Washington State University Libraries offer an array of online image collections to searchers via the Internet. This article describes the CONTENTdm software suite, a tool that has been used by the Libraries since 2000 to enhance its online collection building efforts, and provides a brief overview of collection building at WSU (1). CONTENTdm has several strengths that will be reviewed in this article, including its support for distributed collection building and multiple search clients and the ability to integrate CONTENTdm with other imaging products.
