SobekCM is the software engine which powers both the University of Florida Digital Collections (UFDC) and the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) digital repositories as well as several other current sites, both university and museum sites.

SobekCM allows users to discover online resources via semantic and full-text searches, as well as a variety of different browse mechanisms. For each digital resource in the repository there are many varieties of display options, which may be selected by an appropriately authenticated use. This repository includes online metadata editing and online submissions in support of institutional repositories.

This software was developed at the University of Florida Libraries by Mark Sullivan, with much input from the UF Digital Library Center.

SobekCM is released as open source software under the GNU GPL license and can be downloaded from the SobekCM Software Download Site, new google code site, and older SourceForge site.

This repository was written entirely in C# and runs under IIS on windows servers.
