CONTENTdm & Viewshare

I was invited to show how I integrated viewshare (a free web application) & CONTENTdm (a digital collections management software). I recorded the process but was unable to use the videos at the 9-27-12 webinar so I decided to “prezify” my slideshow.

Views: http://viewshare.org/views/etrcdigital/
Export entire collections
Views are effected by local styles so creating a simple html or php page resulted in the best layout. It also required the least amount of css manipulation. The viewshare user guide has more information about embedding views. http://viewshare.org/about/userguide/#s4.0
