Note that the CLIR "Hidden Collections" grant requests a mock-up image for the presentation of digital objects online. If you would like a mock-up for the display of digital content on the forthcoming redesigned Calisphere site, please contact us and we can determine the best example for your project.


For digital content to be described/managed in the UC Libraries Shared DAMS:

The digital objects generated by [this grant project] will be managed using the UC Libraries Shared Digital Asset Management System (DAMS), a platform available to all libraries within all ten University of California campuses for storing, describing, and managing digital files and metadata. The UC Libraries Shared DAMS is a customized implementation of Nuxeo (, a best-of-breed content management product with an open-source code base. The California Digital Library hosts and maintains this customized implementation to meet the needs of the libraries. The DAMS is a private "workspace" open only to designated UC Libraries staff, but content owners can then direct its collections to be harvested from the DAMS into the common index and published on Calisphere, as described below.

The Shared DAMS provides persistent access to and management of digital assets, but it is not a preservation solution. For preservation, institutions have the option of sending objects, through the DAMS, to CDL's Merritt preservation repository (
