Do you manage digital assets? Do collections or other groups ask you
about digital archiving? At iDigBio, we had a webinar on Digital Asset
Management -- and folks still had more questions. So, next week there's
a webinar and panel session on this topic. Please share widely, thanks!
Wondering how you might archive and manage the digital resources you are
creating? Wondering what your options are? If you have questions, our
panelists may have answers...
For Natural History Collections, keeping track of physical specimens,
documents, media, and related materials is no small task. Capturing as
much of the data from these objects as possible, to provide digital
access is another challenge. Then, collections (and libraries, and
offices, and ...) need to figure out how to archive these digital
resources. What are best practices? Given that financial constraints
often exist and the humans involved must spend time learning how to use
a Digital Asset Management (DAM) tool, what options are available? What
are the small and mid-sized solutions that have been implemented? Where
can Natural History Collections find help with making these decisions
and setting up the selected solutions?
WHEN: Join us next week, Thursday 28 April, 2:30pm to 3:45pm EDT.
Please mark your calendars and bring your questions. If you've found a
great solution - please contribute! We'd like to compile what's working
- as examples for others. If you have something written up about how you
decided, how much it costs, and what it's like to implement and
maintain, it would be great to put these details up at iDigBio for everyone.
Please share this with any interested parties!
