The Archivist Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. Document Transcript

  • 1. The Archivist Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. WORKSHOP TITLE: Digital Asset Management and Institutional Repositories: Case Studies Addressing the Development and Implementation of Systems WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: 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. SPEAKERS: Leala Abbot – Digital Asset Librarian, Enfatico Einar Brendalen - Image Systems Analyst, Metropolitan Museum of Art Jonathan Marmor – Manager of IT and Broadband Operations, Thirteen/WNET New York David Rice – Digital Media Archivist, Thirteen/WNET New York Sunny Yoon - Digital Resources Coordinator, The City University of New York, Office of Library Services
