A digital library, digital repository, or digital collection, is an online database of digital objects that can include text, still images, audio, video, digital documents, or other digital media formats. In addition to storing content, digital libraries provide means for organizing, searching, and retrieving the content contained in the collection. The goal of digital library is to give users a better understanding of what kind of work and people make stage and tribal films and musicals possible. The digitized texts illustrate theoretical background and information on the history of documents; images and videos provide a glimpse into artistic and technical aspects. Objects that would be to satisfy different interests within tribal groups were included. A selection of short tribal videos from these productions to showcase the performance aspect to users, as well as articles, journals, thesis, annual reports, tribal photos and tribal books to provide more information about each of the end user were also included. All the images and texts had to be scanned. All videos were to be converted from flash video to MPEG files so we those could be posted on Content DM. CONTENT DM is a DAM (Digital Asset Management) service that features tools for creating, displaying, and preserving digital collections. Content DM was very user friendly. Its a User Support Center allows its users to view various tutorials about both setup and file creation, participate in web-based training, view a variety of resources, and download other programs. Moreover, it allows its users to more easily and efficiently organize their digital materials. It was decided to publish text files as PDFs, videos as MPEGs, and still images as JPEG files. The distinction between format and type was also made when assigning metadata. For instance, a text file is labeled in the Type field as text but in the format field, it is labeled as a PDF.
