New Services through FirstSearch from OCLC

Intranet Page for Log In Information:

OCLC has announced significant enhancements to the FirstSearch package that we subscribe to including three new databases (OAIster, CAMIO and ArchiveGrid) and a an entry-scale, hosted version of CONTENTdm, all provided at no additional charge. The three new databases were added in late January, and the CONTENTdm option will be effective in May.

OAIster is a union catalog of more than 19,000,000 records representing digital resources from more than 1,000 contributors.

CAMIO is a resource of more than 95,000 works of art from prominent museums around the world.  Showcasing a wide range of fine and decorative art, CAMIO provides high-quality art images for education, research and enjoyment.  All content is rights-cleared for educational use.  Every work in CAMIO is represented by at least one high-resolution image and a description.  Many have additional views of the work, sound, video, and curatorial notes.

ArchiveGrid provides online access to nearly a million descriptions of archival collections owned by thousands of libraries, museums, historical societies and arhives worldwide.  Important for searching for historical documents, personal papers, and family histories hed in archives.

CONTENTdm helps libraries to make digital collections available on the Web, more quickly and easily.
