It is a very useful software that allows you to store and search digital images (scanned pictures, documents, digitized multimedia files, etc.) and build collections in a collaborative environment. One regional project that UNLV Libraries have contributed to is the Mountain West Digital Library that gathers collections from 12 institutions in the Mountain West geographic region together in one searchable database. More information about CONTENTdm can be found at the DiMeMa website.
