Manage and store your digital assets

As an additional layer to our Digital Commons Institutional Repository, the Exhibits module leverages the same best-in-class software, guaranteeing your assets are hosted on a stable and robust platform, with content backed up to secure cloud-based servers.

Benefit from ongoing privacy and security updates, and unlimited storage for any file type means that you can grow your collections without extra costs.

All metadata fields are customizable and user-friendly, to provide visitors with accurate, current and descriptive information; regardless of the volume of metadata involved.

With the open-source software we used, exhibits might get 500 visits a month. With DCX, those visits run into thousands. That's a significant difference.
