I wanted to solicit some feedback and advice from my code4lib colleagues
about Digital Collections and Institutional Repository software solutions.

For the past several years we have used a local installation of CONTENTdm
as our digital repository []. Due to
OCLC's recent announcement of a shift to a "hosted only" model for
CONTENTdm, we are starting to research our options for change.

We would like to be able to provide additional functionality for our
library digital collections, and to provide our campus with a more
versatile institutional repository.

If your institution is using CONTENTdm Hosted, Islandora, Digital Commons,
or other similar products, I'd love to get a feel for your experiences --
especially about migrating to your current platform from an earlier
product. If you have some time for a few brief questions by email please
feel free to contact me off list.

Thanks very much for your time.
