About CONTENTdm Catcher

Find an overview of the CONTENTdm Catcher and sample code files.

CONTENTdm Catcher is a Web service that supports batch requests to edit existing metadata fields, delete records, or add metadata-only records. When processed through Catcher, the existing Reference URL for an item will remain unchanged. Catcher provides an ideal mechanism for the addition of a batch of metadata records from another digital repository to a CONTENTdm collection.

The use of the Catcher web service is available to any CONTENTdm subscriber at no additional cost.

For more information, please see Guide to the CONTENTdm Catcher.
