Cleveland Public Library Digital Gallery brings digital collections to life with interactive video wall

“Earlier this year, the Cleveland Public Library installed an interactive touch, video wall to help patrons learn about local history through resources in the library’s Digital Gallery, which is powered by OCLC’s CONTENTdm. With CONTENTdm, you can increase the visibility of your digital collections and make them more discoverable. CONTENTdm allows you to store, edit and display your digital collections, so you can showcase them online and share them with the world.” (OCLC)
