Platform selected for images and more

I’ve spent the last several months testing and evaluating a number of possible platforms for displaying our digital photographs. The top two contenders were OCLC’s CONTENTdm and the open source Omeka. After using CONTENTdm for an LSTA grant, working on a demo for the new version and looking at how other institutions have made use of it, I presented my recommendation that we purchase a license for it to our management committee yesterday and was pleased to have them approve it. I still have some questions, but should be able to move forward in the next week or two.
