      ADAH INCREASES COLLECTIONS AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET



          In Celebration of Archives Week, the Alabama Department of Archives
      and History (ADAH) is debuting a new service available on its website -
      CONTENTdm®.  CONTENTdm® is an image management software that supports
      distribution of images of ADAH collections on its web site. Come to ADAH
      on Tuesday, October 16, 2007, from 10 AM to 11 AM for a demonstration of
      the new software and content available online!

          CONTENTdm®, a digital collection management system, allows
      archivists to store, index, and display digitized primary resources
      online.  Developed at the University of Washington, the program is in
      wide use at special collections repositories and research libraries
      across the country.

          The first collections created for CONTENTdm® are under the ADAH
      Digital Collections and include Alabama Photographs and Pictures
      Collection, Alabama State Publications, and the Frank W. Boykin
      Collection.  Boykin represented Alabama's First Congressional District
      from 1935 to 1963.  His collection alone contains more than a thousand
      items of personal and official correspondence, political memorabilia,
      and photographs.  They are available thanks to a donation from the
      Tensaw Land and Timber Company in honor of Boykin's granddaughter, Ocllo
      Malone.

          Archives staffers are continuing to learn the system and entering
      data on a continuous basis in the  Alabama Photographs and Pictures and
      Alabama State Publications collections.  Work is also being done to
      completed four future collections in a timely manner.  These are the
      Selma to Montgomery March, Civil War Period Flag Collection, Confederate
      Officers Photograph Album, and Alabama Governors.  More information
      regarding ADAH Digital Collections may be found at
      http://216.226.178.196/ or call (334) 353-4635.
