This page contains links and resources specific to Web Content Management (WCM). WCM part of a larger Enterprise Content Management (ECM) strategy that’s part of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007. MOSS is built on top of Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) v3.

Microsoft’s SharePoint product stack is now so vast, that WCM specific links could easily get lost in the sea of resources. Therefore this page will only contain links specific to WCM and not MOSS or WSS as a whole. If you’re looking for links for MOSS or WSS, I’ve included links to some other link-fests in the General SharePoint Information section within this page.

Some general SharePoint topics are listed here, such as content types and workflow, when I felt they would be of enough interest for WCM site owners, designers, and developers.
