DAMLA 2017 State of the Arts: DAMs in the cultural heritage sector

Slides from session at Henry Stewart DAM LA Conference
November 14, 2017
Session description:
The cultural heritage sector plays an important role in our society, primarily because it has the responsibility to collect and preserve both artifacts and knowledge from the past in order to share them in the present and maintain them for the benefit of future generations.

Nearly all cultural heritage organizations operate as nonprofits, with specific mandates and very tight budgets. With those constraints in place, the sector must still find a way to compete for the same customers as all other consumer-oriented businesses - in that light, leveraging digital content offers a strong potential path to success.

In order to attract and engage 21st century audiences and contributors, cultural heritage organizations have become digital publishers, creating and providing access to meaningful content on a scale that was never anticipated. While most have become adept at producing digital content, the sector has been playing catch up when it comes to organizing, cataloging and sharing that content.

This session will look at how cultural organizations can achieve mission-focused success and competitive advantage by adopting best practices in digital asset management and digital curation. In addition, we will examine the formal responsibility and challenge for nonprofit/cultural heritage organizations to ensure long-term preservation and provide access to digital assets in perpetuity.
