Linking to Digital Objects



Using ‘My Favorites’

You can select items (called “objects”) and save them into the “My Favorites” function offered by this collection's software, CONTENTdm. You must have your cookies enabled to do this. Items saved to “My Favorites” are PC and browser-specific.


  1. When viewing any digital object, locate the “Add …. favorites” option in a menu bar. For a single document, the label reads “Add page to favorites.” For a folder of documents, it reads “Add documents to favorites.” For audio and video files, it reads “Add to favorites.” Click on those labels and the digital object will be saved as one of your favorites.
  2. After you have saved something, find “My Favorites” in a menu bar. Click here to view your saved digital object/s. You can save as a web page, or compare, remove or rearrange the objects.
