Sailing the Digital Serial Seas: Charting a New Course with CONTENTdm

The State Library of North Carolina is legally mandated to facilitate public access to publications issued by State agencies and manage the depository system. With the increase of born digital documents and the demand for electronic access, the State Library needed to find a way to support the systematic collection, preservation, and access to state information in digital formats. Focusing on finding repository solutions for digital state publications and based on comparisons among leading products, the library found CONTENTdm to be the best overall fit. With the continuing need to create MARC records for digital documents, CONTENTdm offered functionality to create compound objects for single documents as well as structured serials, providing one permanent URL either way.  Working with born digital and digitized serials still presents certain challenges with workflows, providing access, and compensating for the differences between born digital and digitized formats. This presentation discusses the ups and downs of managing digital serials in CONTENTdm, how we do it, and why we do it from the perspective of a mid-size state government library.
