OSUIT Digital Archive Launches with 3,000+ Historic Photos & More

OSU Institute of Technology is proud to introduce the newly upgraded ContentDM platform, a digital archive system offering access to historical treasures for all. Gone are the days of scouring dusty shelves— with the improved ContentDM, the historical archives of OSUIT are now available at your fingertips. Users can now take a journey through time from the comforts of their own screens.

Clinton Gerkin, OSUIT library archivist and the driving force behind this project, has led us on a mission. He shares, “Our goal is simple: to preserve every facet of our institution’s history on this platform. The process of adding thousands of items has been extensive but immensely rewarding.”

Over 3,000 scanned photographs are already available. This journey wasn’t without its challenges, but as Gerkin reflects, “Navigating ContentDM was like solving a puzzle. But with each obstacle, we grew stronger, committed to preserving OSUIT’s legacy.”

Content DM is not just about photographs. It has the capacity to host a diverse range of media types, from audio to readable content, digitized books and yearbooks to audio recordings and graduation programs.

Enhanced search capabilities and visually appealing content are just the tip of the iceberg. Backed by the Oklahoma State University System, ContentDM opens doors to greater accessibility and usability, inviting users to dive deep into OSUIT’s history.
