Digital Asset Management and Institutional Repositories: Case Studies
Addressing the Development and Implementation of Systems
It did not come as much of a surprise when the NYART 2008 Workshop Membership
Survey showed an overwhelming interest in workshops being planned around the topic of
digital/media asset management. The relatively recent emergence of Digital Asset
Management Systems and Institutional Repositories has had a major impact on libraries and
archives as a whole as well as the daily practices of librarians and archivists. They have
forever altered the concepts and practices of archiving, preservation and access.
Development and implementation of these systems is a topic that has been, or will soon be
tackled for the first time in many organizations. For those organizations beyond this initial
milestone, the challenge and experience serves as practice as they look forward to repeating
the process many more times to come.
Working with these systems has become an integral part of the modern day archivist’s job.
The establishment of roles and guidelines of how the archivist engages and interfaces with
colleagues revolving around these systems are still forming. However, it is clear that
knowledge of these systems is a fundamental requirement of the archivist, and that there is a
distinct role for the archivist to play.
This workshop consists of three presentations from a group of five experts. These
presentations will present case studies of projects in which they have been involved. The
projects span all relevant content and media types including documents, still images, moving
image and sound. The presenters will share their valuable experiences, focusing on covering
concerns and questions that many NYART members are, or will soon be asking as they
embark on their own projects.
