Presented by Noah Richman at the Annual Conference of the Visual Resources Association, April 3rd - April 6th, 2013, in Providence, Rhode Island.

Session #4: Every Asset, Everywhere: Perspectives on Digital Asset Management
ORGANIZER / MODERATOR : Elisa Lanzi, Smith College
PRESENTERS:
Howard Goldstein, HR Goldstein Consulting, Digital Imaging Strategies
Elisa Lanzi, Smith College, Director of Digital Strategies and Services
Noah Richman, SRP Phoenix, Media Librarian

Are you hearing the terms “DAM, Digital Preservation, and Media Repositories” more and more at your institution? As our organizations increasingly depend on digital content for all areas of business, the need for enterprise-wide digital asset management is being expressed loud and clear. While cultural institutions are just beginning to implement systems for managing and preserving assets, other media communities (broadcasting, advertising, publishing, etc.) have broad experience in this area. This session brings together panelists for a multi-point perspective on DAM and its impact on the Visual Resources community. Topics include: Digital Asset Management systems demystified; Metadata, taxonomy and DAM; and Digital Preservation. In addition, an open dialogue on VR and organizational change with DAM will be moderated by Lanzi.
