Call for Presenters:
Practicing Digital Asset Management (DAM): Various Approaches
For t he [ http://vraweb.org/ | Visual Resources Association ] ’s 36th Annual
Conference, to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from Tuesday , March 27th
, through Friday, March 30 , 2018, in the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, I am
proposing a session on Digital Asset Management (DAM).
Session Description (draft):
Digital asset management (DAM) refers to the process of collecting, cataloging,
delivering, and preserving digital assets, while digital asset management
systems (DAMS) provide users with a central location to search, locate, access,
and share those assets in an easy and efficient way. In addition to providing
an introduction to the basics of DAM, this session will also focus on its
practice within the corporate, cultural heritage, and higher education sectors.
Panelists representing these diverse fields will share their stories, enabling
us to discover commonalities as well as unique needs. Whether you are looking
into your first DAM system or rethinking an existing system’s current
potential, this session will offer concrete examples of individual experiences
and lessons learned. Panelists will discuss how they approached technical and
staff resourcing, budgeting, metadata and file migration, and integrating the
DAMS with other platforms.
Format: 90-minute moderated session with 3 to 4 speakers at 15 to 20 minutes
each followed by a facilitated brief question and answer period.
As indicated in the description, I am specifically looking for panelists who
can discuss the practice of DAM from the corporate, cultural heritage, or
higher education sectors.
To express interest in presenting, please contact Carolyn Lucarelli at
c...@psu.edu , with an overview of your idea, by Friday, July 21 .
(Apologies for the short timeline, but the VRA Conference proposal deadline is
July 28 , 2017.)
