Abstract:
Digital Content Management System is a software system that provides preservation, organization and dissemination services for digital collections. By adapting the systems analysis process, the University of Arizona Library analyzed its needs and developed Content Management System requirements for finding a suitable information system that addresses the increasing needs of digital content management. Dozens commercial and open source candidates were examined to match against the requirements. This article provides detailed analysis of three major players (Greenstone, Fedora, and DSpace) in key areas of digital content management: preservation, metadata, access, and system features based on the needs of the University of Arizona Library. This paper describes the process we used to analyze and evaluate potential candidates. We have included results of our analysis to illuminate our process.
