CONTENTdm - August's Featured Collections

Entry Categories: Digitization & Preservation  

This month, four collections from the CONTENTdm Collection of Collections are featured on the CONTENTdm Web site. The featured collections for August are The Templeton Digital Sheet Music Collection, Nevada in Maps, Gemeentearchief Veenendaal, and Dot Carpenter: The Woman Behind the Man.

Included in the collection information below is a link to each organization’s record in the OCLC WorldCat Registry. OCLC’s WorldCat Registry allows libraries worldwide to manage and organize their data for vendors and third parties by creating and maintaining a comprehensive institutional profile in a single, Web-accessible location.

The Templeton Digital Sheet Music Collection
Mississippi State University Libraries

Since the Templeton Digital Sheet Music project began in 2000, nearly 6,000 sheet music scores have been added to the digital collection. For those published prior to 1923, entire scores are viewable. Metadata and cover art are available for all others. The complete collection of almost 22,000 pieces, which includes popular tunes dating as far back as 1865, is part of the Charles H. Templeton, Sr. Music Museum, located in the Mitchell Memorial Library on the Mississippi State University campus.

Nevada in Maps
University of Nevada, Reno

The original focus of this digital map site was a collection of historic maps of Nevada presenting topographic, geologic, and mining themes. Many of these maps are over 100 years old, deteriorating, rare, not cataloged and, therefore, not readily available or even known to potential patrons. There are now over 4200 maps and atlases on this site with many more to be added. The site also includes contemporary maps of Nevada and the Great Basin.

Gemeentearchief Veenendaal
Gemeente Veenendaal

This digital archive contains photographs of the city of Veenendaal in the Netherlands. Images depict the city from the early 1900s through the current age.

Dot Carpenter: The Woman Behind the Man
Colorado State University Libraries

It is said that behind every great man is a great woman. Delph Carpenter, “Father of Interstate River Compacts,” found greatness through working tirelessly—even when increasingly ill—ably aided by his wife, Dot. In this virtual exhibit, Dot Carpenter’s life is examined through the people who influenced her. Among other achievements, Dot's legacy is reflected in the western water law contributions made by her husband and son. This exhibit features items from the Papers of Delph E. Carpenter and Family.

These are just a few of the many outstanding digital collections created by CONTENTdm users.
