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.) 

Thank you!
